• Exhibition “Dance & Gesture” by Sous Sodavy
Friday 28 February at 6:30pm
Born in 1955, Sous Sodavy is a Cambodian painter trained at The Hungarian University of Fine Arts of Budapest, and is now a teacher at the University of Fine Arts of Cambodia. For this exhibition, he will present unique pieces on the subject of dance, treated with infinite finesse, that he chose to apprehend through both form and substance. Lyrical and sensitive reverie, his paintings reveal how intertwined body and dance gesture really are.
