“Rachana” is the result of a collaboration between three free-minded Cambodian women from the creative sector, whose focus is to highlight the beauty of traditional/native wear and their colorful culture and origins, while adding contemporary touches and twists, turning the concept into a prêt-à-porter collection. By encouraging constant self-discovery and cultural intersections, while embracing one’s origins and identity, “Rachana” is the conscience of connecting cultural diversity with universality. In such diversified world, we are all one humanity.

French and Cambodian artist, on this occasion I want to transcend my khmer heritage into art. 

On this artwork, a beautiful woman is inside a triangle. She is looking for who she is. 

Once she understands her heritage, her identity, her past, she is becoming self aware, self conscious. This awakening of who she is as a whole will free her. Aware of  her roots, she is becoming an original soul, an evolution of a cultural mixité.

CHAPTER 1: Wonderer

Our identity changes, evolves, transforms, throughout time but remains connected to our past, our genealogical trauma, our genes, environment, culture, religion, neurosis … ‘’ So long as we are unaware of what we are, and are trying to become something else, so long will there be distortion and pain’’ (Krishnamurti) In that repeatedly cycle we will acted destructively towards ourselves, others and our environment.

CHAPTER 2: Rouge
CHAPTER 2: Rouge

We, as humanity, are in a limbo. Our histories have been hunting us. Our behavior is our destruction. We are our “own cancer”. We are prisoner of a never ending cycle of destruction, desires, regrets, discrimination, violence, hatred, wars …   We, humans, haven’t been honest to ourselves and have chosen to avoid learning from our past. We repeat history over and over, in an infinite loop. If we understand who we really are in space and time, we will start to be self aware, self consciousness

CHAPTER 4: levitate

Being conscious is to understand the phenomenology of your own mind. Understanding that everything around is a recreation, interpretation of your mind. How everything can shape you and shape how you see the world. Once you understand all the psychological process of your choices, actions and thoughts, you are reaching towards the door of ‘’freedom’’. You can reboot and rebirth your mind. Wake up!
