Cambodia Airports


As a stopping off place – from one terminal to another, from one’s daily location to somewhere else – and as a crossing point – crossing: borders, barriers, and time zones – the airport refers to a contemporary mythology of departure, discovery and uprooting.

This work results from a carte blanche given by Cambodia Airports and the Institut français in Cambodia. Tackling the expansion of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap airports, it is based on an approach to immediate archaeology, between existent and non-existent, between the traces of a reality that is about to disappear, and the evidence of a future that emerges from the concrete or metallic shapes of the building sites.
