IN/VISIBLE BORDERLINE is a research base project. It focuses on Cambodian-Vietnamese border in Mekong Delta area where political ties are strained by distrust and prejudices and long conflicted history.

The Project enquires reflections on the notions of home, identity and migration all in weaving. It also reveals the conflict and ambiguity in relationship between natural-manmade world, and in human histories.
My collaborator and I shift the artist’s roles to be free trading dealers who bargain for the exchanges between audience’s memorial stories to border sculptures made from Palm sugar which grow along both sides of the border. The installation is transformed from a political presentation to a personal interactive installation.
This project aim both to deconstructing the issues of geography borderline and political borderline.
