For quite some time I’ve wanted to bring my prints to life, to have them do more than hang on walls and in galleries.
Ever since I discovered this Cambodian version of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” I knew I had to pair it with my Bokor prints. Its haunting sound captures the strange era of the late 60s/early 70s: from music brought by American soldiers to Cambodian cultural influences to the musical possibilities offered by electric instruments.
The French version below is still a work-in-progress, and I am investigating how to add Khmer script. Any volunteer translators with Khmer language skills welcomed!
