10. Splendor & Darkness #22 (2017)
Vietnamese artist Dinh Q. Lê is known for his large-scale photomontages that reveal a woven tapestry of images documenting unheard voices and narratives. At STPI, Lê revisited the series, Splendor & Darkness, translating photographs of Cambodian temples and iconic portraits of Khmer Rouge victims into monumental foiling works of greater texture, depth and warmth. The resulting transfigured image is a rich, multifaceted viewpoint of history and a reflection of our fragmented personal and collective memory.
Foiling and screen print on Stonehenge paper; cut, weaved and burnt, with acid-free double-sided tape and linen tape.
