Sopheap Pich Review in the Seattle Times

 

Have you seen Sopheap Pich’s Compound yet?

Michael Upchurch from the Seattle Times wrote a wonderful review of the exhibition. Here’s an excerpt:

“The piece seems fancifully “architectural” at first. But on closer scrutiny, it’s more chilling. Its rectangles feel like claustrophobic cages. Its tapering domes, when viewed from a sidelong angle, resemble undetonated bombs. As for its folksy construction materials, they tap directly into a Cambodian landscape where bombs and bodies from the Khmer Rouge era can still be found, with a little digging.”

Read the rest  here.

Sopheap Pich’s Compound is up at the Henry until April 1, 2012, but why wait that long?

The Henry is open

11-4: Wednesday
11-9: Thursday and Friday
