About Action in Phnom Penh, Peng Panh, Cambodia

The photograph was created within the global project 'Women Are Heroes'. In 2009, an action of the project took place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. For the project, JR pasted large-scale, haunting photographs of women's faces and eyes onto crumbling walls and barracks.

The women shown are at a crucial point in their struggle. They are fighting to keep their homes in the Day Krahorn slum on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. The city is currently experiencing a real estate boom, with rents skyrocketing and many new buildings being constructed. The women of the slum are fighting the city and government authorities and the developers, trying to prevent them and their families from being evicted and "relocated" to a place unknown to them, often very far from the city center. They are fighting against the expropriation and dissolution of their neighborhood, where they live and where they, their children and grandchildren were born.

The lithograph is printed with a traditional printing press of Marinoni on white art paper in limited edition with embossing stamp of the printer, signed by JR in the lower right corner (original pencil signature) and numbered in the lower left corner.
