Photo exhibition by Kim Hak, photographer
From 1 August until 31 August 2019
Opening on 1 August 2019 at 6.30pm
A journey of discovery has taken the artist Kim Hak from his home town of Battambang to other parts of Cambodia and on to Australia and New Zealand. In each of these places he has found Cambodians who survived the Khmer Rouge and have their own unique stories of trauma and strength.
In 2018, with support from the Rei Foundation, Kim Hak spent time with 12 Cambodian families now in New Zealand, documenting their personal objects that hold the stories from their journey in surviving the Khmer Rouge and refugee camps and then resettling far from their homeland.
A version of this exhibition was first shown at Objectspace gallery in Auckland, New Zealand from 1 June to 20 July 2019. It will exist in Cambodia on 1 August.
