“My Art Diary,” directed by Pakhornkham Boualek, will be the first episode in a planned series of short documentaries highlighting contemporary artists in Laos. Three artists who use scissors as one of their tools will be featured. Tcheu Siong, a self-taught artist, applies the traditional Hmong techniques of embroidery and reverse applique, to create bold figurative works of cloth. Keomany Souvannalth uses fabric scraps to create collage “paintings” of the dreams of the happiness of women. Khampoun Seangmany is a young designer who considers his creations to be artworks that are worn.
