Bearing shared interests in changing landscapes, especially the impacts and implications of human intervention on our environments, Shaking Land and Water brings together the works of six artists from Cambodia and Singapore. The exhibition’s title takes its cue from the work of participating artist Sao Sreymao, with the motion of "shaking" as evocative of movement, instability, change, as well as a means to unsettle perceptions and assumptions. These sentiments undergird all the artworks in the show that traverse land, watery and littoral zones to examine and navigate the tenuous dynamics between human, nature and urban development.


Centred around dialogue and conversation, each artist in the exhibition had a conversation partner—Eng with Toramae, Prak and Syahrul, Sao with Zarina—to share experiences, insights and explore issues that resonate across their practices. The artworks presented in the exhibition were developed through this exploration in artistic exchange.


This exhibition is co-curated with Sa Sa Art Projects, an artist-run space embracing diverse, experimental and critical contemporary art practices. Founded in 2010, the activities of the Phnom Penh-based initiative endeavours to address Cambodia’s lack of infrastructure for contemporary art engagement and education.


Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places.
