Solo exhibition by Miya Choi

From October 3 to October 28
Opening reception on October 3, 5:30pm (Invitation Only)

Hope for Cambodia is a series of digital paintings by artist Miya Choi. These paintings capture the visions that she has while meditating on the Bible. Some appeared vividly with hurried strokes, and others felt uncertain and needed revisions. Through the process, Miya sought to bridge her personal and spiritual discoveries to the natural, colorful world.

The works in this exhibition are inspired by forms and colors—the most essential abstraction of the universe. A curved line across the canvas becomes the horizon separating heaven and earth. A blue sky sparks joy whereas a grey one feels somber. Intersecting lines and coloring the in-between spaces, Miya creates planes that fit like puzzle pieces. Recognizable and repeating elements—a hand or a tree—help ground abstraction in reality. Together, they create dreamlike scenes resembling stained glasses in a church.

Miya’s life in Cambodia deeply affected this work. The colors of the sunset, entangled roots, and the lotus flower show her affection and respect for Cambodia. Through this work, she hopes to communicate a message of love and hope to all people, especially Cambodians—like a star shining in the dark; a dove soaring over the waves.

The public can visit the exhibition with at least 2m social distancing rule. Also, wear a mask, clean your hands. We're very much thankful for your cooperation to prevent COVID-19.

  • Archives


    The Bophana Center’s archives are both our pillar and our purpose. Our core mission is to give new life to any Cambodian-related film or audiovisual heritage by collecting and preserving movies, photographs and any sound records from Cambodia or from abroad.

  • Production


    Production is the second pillar of the Bophana Center. Because production and audiovisual archives are closely associated in one single location, the center has become a unique place that combines culture and development, heritage and modern audiovisual creation, filmmaking and multimedia.

Services

Since the launch of the Bophana Center, we have developed a wide range of services targeting various audiences, including individuals, civil society organizations, enterprises, and institutions.

What a great project! What a challenge! The Bophana Center questions memories, discloses and discovers them. And suddenly the whole collection helps illuminate the present. While spending some time there, I could feel that a dream was taking shape. And the sights and sounds were becoming weapons of massive construction. Thank you, Rithy, and congratulations to all.
