Serei Saophoan Cambodia Art
Cambodia's War Widows Project, which began seven years ago as a social practice project to explore photography in the form of art therapy, now has its first exhibition in Siem Reap. The show, which runs until the end of September, is the culmination of an interest and activity in contemporary art that has developed around Siem in the past year. Initiated by the Cambodian National Museum of Contemporary Art (CNCA), the work is part of a collection of haunting and heartfelt works by widowed women in rural Cambodia.
To understand the experiences of widows in Cambodia, we must first try to understand both the social value and the power of the project. We can feel lost in a gallery space, even if we engage with the community through this project, but we can also feel "lost" in its environment.
Our ancestors in Cambodia had an empire called Angkor, which was located in the northwest of what is now Cambodia. This province remains one of the most heavily mined areas of Cambodia, where several front-line fighters are facing off.

Fertility is high in Phnom Penh, where women have an average of 2.0 children, and in the capital, Kampong Cham, where they have an average of 4.5 children. Most Cambodians are descendants of the Khmer, who founded the Indian empire in the 6th century under the influence of the Angkor Empire and ruled the area of what is now Cambodia for the next 900 years. This empire stretched from Burma (now Myanmar) over large parts of Southeast Asia as well as parts of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.
The Japanese occupying king Norodom Sihanouk, who ascended to the throne in 1941 and practically imprisoned her, declared Cambodia independent in 1945 and bowed to the temporary resumption of the French protectorate, which was enforced by allied troops in Phnom Penh, but gave way again in 1946 after it was enforced by the Allies, and four years later when Vietnam conquered Cambodia. He and other family members were killed in 1975 when the Vietnamese invaded Cambodia to overthrow Pol Pot and his regime. When the brutal Khmer Rouge took control of Cambodia in 1975, he returned from exile and became a symbolic head of state. The French ruled the protectorates for a few years until they joined Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam to form French Indochina.
After a five-year struggle, the communist Khmer Rouge seized Phnom Penh in 1975 and ordered the evacuation of the city and cities. More than a million displaced people died in executions to exacerbate the misery. In the following centuries, however, the empire was weakened by continued attacks by the Thais, who took Angkor in 1431, but those days were over and large parts of Cambodia became Thai-Vietnamese condominiums at the end of the 18th century. The Khmer Rouge became a great power after taking over the Phom Penh Peninsula in 1975 and carrying out a Cambodian genocide until they were driven out by a Vietnamese-backed People's Republic in the 1979-91 Vietnam War. But the Kingdom of Cambodia has survived these dark times and still stands tall.

The Batia Sarem Gallery is the result of two Parisian gallery owners and is operated in collaboration with the Cambodian National Museum in Phnom Penh and the Siem Reap Museum. The Open Studio Cambodia art space has recently opened in the city and is moving to Siem, what it calls "Cambodia's buzzing art city." The reservoir was built by the Khmer Rouge regime to store excess water during the rainy season and irrigate rice fields during the dry season. It was built on the banks of the Mekong, where the wind blows in from the north and the rain dries up the water.
