The Cube Project is pleased to present Cambodian artist Vandy Rattana’s first solo exhibition in Taiwan, titled Working-Through: Vandy Rattana and His Ditched Footages, curated by Fang-Tze Hsu. Taking Rattana’s poetry writing, translating, and publishing as a point of departure, the exhibition juxtaposes these newly established creative exercises after his relocation to Taiwan with his practices of image-making since 2009. The exhibition not only examines Vandy’s philosophical continuum between journalistic photography and an experimental approach towards filmmaking but also concerns his re-contextualization of political reality regarding the mainstream memory politics of the post-Khmer Rouge era. As a way to situate the internal connections between those who have been muted by the grand narrative of history and the collective sensorial agency of the Mass, Working-Through delves into Vandy’s psychological cartography, reified by the artist’s ceaseless revisiting of long-forgotten historical sites.
