No rice for the pot
No rice for the pot is a project questioning gender and tradition in Cambodia. The artist is using the rice pot, which is an important item in every countryside household in Cambodia and one of the most valuable possession for a married woman. A group of women will be interviewed in order to discuss the meaning of this object and how it is related to their lives. As a result of these interviews, a collective action in the village will be made.
