Lives and works in Phnom Penh
Sopheap Pich was born in Cambodia and left the country with his family as a refugee at the end of the Khmer Rouge’s reign, subsequently settling in the U.S. Memories of his childhood experiences in Cambodia and a desire to reconnect drew the artist back to the country in 2002. Pich draws his materials, primarily rattan and bamboo, from indigenous sources and uses a traditional weaving technique. Pich has had solo exhibitions at Henry Art Gallery, Seattle (2011–2012); and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2013). Notable group exhibitions include the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial, Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, Australia (2009); Singapore Biennial (2011); Documenta 13 (2012); 57th Venice Biennale (2017).
