White Building - Kong Nay

White Building - Kong Nay
one-channel HD video, 9' 25", 2016

Kong Nay is one of relatively few great Chapei Dong Veng masters to have survived the Khmer Rouge era. Blind from the age of four as a result of smallpox, he is very gifted in music as a singing poem. He used to live in the White Building, and now he lives in the Kampot Province, a country side of Cambodia. The artist visited Kong Nay with photographers and sound recordists and made this long take video. In this video Kong Nay performs an ancient story about Chapei Dong Veng.

高畫質單頻道錄像,9' 25",2016

貢奈是柬埔寨少數僅存的柬埔寨魯特琴(Chapei Dong Veng)大師,雖然四歲時便因染天花而雙目失明,但卻是有極高音樂造詣的吟唱詩人。在紅高棉統治期間,貢奈幸運地保存了性命,他曾經居住在白色大樓當中,現今則是居住在柬埔寨鄉下(Kampot Province)的住所。藝術家帶著攝影師與錄音師拜訪貢奈,並以一鏡到底的方式創作了這件錄像。影片中貢奈唱述一段有關柬埔寨魯特琴遠古的故事。
