Break, Bind & Rebuild
Break, Bind & Rebuild is a two-person exhibition featuring Cambodian-born artists Amy Lee Sanford and Tith Kanitha.
Amy Lee Sanford fled the civil war and has spent most of her life in the US. This is said to be a cornerstone of her practice. Tith Kanitha’s works are said to emerge from the conditions surrounding her daily life in Phnom Penh.
Sanford incorporates broken pottery as a remembrance of her father, who was killed by the Khmer Rouge. This process of “meditative remembrance” is intensely personal and through her silence, becomes universal.
