About Souliya Phoumivong

Souliya Phoumivong developed an interest in photography and animation while on a residency in Japan, and has since become one of Laos’ leading media-artists. Working primarily in stop-motion, the artist reflects on changes in Laos’ society brought about by technology and an opening economy, noticing greater flows of information and material resources have brought about new conformist desires. The video Flow questions both conscious and unconscious habits of following the masses through a colorful cast of buffalo who tempt human protagonists to join the herd in a cyclic meandering.
