Khvay Samnang presented a one-night preview screening of a video of his performance Enjoy My Sand: Samnang Cow Taxi in Singapore at “Bonn Phum Nov Bo-Ding (Village Festival at the White Building)”, organized by Sa Sa Art Projects and partners as part of 2014’s Our City Festival.

A new interactive installation, which will include the video of Enjoy My Sand: Samnang Cow Taxi in Singapore, will be shown for the first time at Yavuz Fine Art, Singapore as part of And That Which Was Always Known, an exhibition I am curating which opens on 12 June 2014.
