With respect to the health situation in Cambodia and the security measures that the Institute has been set up to guarantee the safety of its users, no public opening is planned for this exhibition.
A graduate from the École Nationale Supérieure de Photographie in Arles, France, Marie Le Mounier is now a teacher at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels La Cambre in Bruxelles, Belgium. She has been collaborating with the Swiss artist Beat Streuli for many years, who graciously accepted to join the residency she led in Cambodia by producing a wall installation, visible in front of the Media Library of the French institute.

The title of the exhibition, “TRANSIT”, created by Marie Le Mounier with the students of le Studio Images, was chosen as a theme for this collective work. It enters into her concerns regarding the portrayal of reality, in which she shows people questioning the inner working of their urban environment, which they constantly keep passing through.
Throughout this residency, which was partly led under the threat of a global pandemic and necessitated a digital accommodation, Marie Le Mounier and the students of Le Studio Images roamed the city to offer their own vision and carefully crafted message, each in their own way.
The residency was made possible thanks to the support of Cambodia Airports.
