The Dead Eye and The Deep Blue Sea
A graphic memoir and artwork of modern slavery by Vannak Anan Prum
Showing through 18 October 2019
Java Creative Cafe
56 Sihanouk Blvd
This exhibition takes a look at the detailed and compelling drawings of Vannak Anan Prum, artist and author of The Dead Eye and The Deep Blue Sea. The drawings are selected from the book, a graphic novel that tells his incredible story of surviving slavery in the regional fishing and agricultural industries. Vannak is a self-taught artist and his illustrative skills allowed him to gain favor with other people he was forced to live and work with by giving them tattoos. More importantly, thanks to his photographic memory he was able to draw his experiences in detail when he arrived home four years later. At first, he made the drawings to offer proof to his family in the only way he could. Later he decided to share his story publicly, leading to the publication of the graphic novel, further exposing the harsh realities of modern-day slavery.

Abused daily by demi-gods, the demon Akeang Khamaso begs for justice from his lord Preah Eysor. Bestowed with a magic finger that destroys all it points at, the victim quickly becomes the abuser and wreaks havoc in the palaces of heaven. Featuring stellar dancers dressed in fanciful costumes, The Lives of Giants is a contemporary meditation on bullying, cycles of violence, and the responsibilities of wielding power, performed by the globally acclaimed Sophiline Arts Ensemble.
