Friends Futures Factory

Worlds Unknown brings together the artworks of five young artists, each with a unique vision. KONG Siden, MECH Choulay, Roun RY, SONG Seakleng and VONG Chandarey were awarded the Creative Generation 3 Prize in 2020. Each artist will present a site-specific installation across the spaces of Friends Futures Factory (F3) that invites the public to explore worlds that are often invisible and unknown. The plight of a community that is obscured from the public eye, the life of elephants as both god and vulnerable creature, an inner emotional life that generates fantastical worlds, meditation through light and sound and an existential exploration of spirituality and everyday situations.
