"LIMITLESS POSSIBILITIES AND FEELING ALIVE ARE THE TWO GOALS OF THIS NEW ART SPACE MADE FOR THE COMMUNITY TO GROW, SHARE, LAUGH, EXPERIENCE, AND WONDER!" IKIGAI ARTS CENTER
AT IKIGAI ARTS CENTER
We aim to propose surprising and original immersive arts experiences which intrigue, disturb, create emotions and make the visitor question.
– Breaking the boxes of the artistic disciplines
– Proposing action arts, creating a confusion in the traditional split between the artist and the artwork
– Developing and playing around the 4 elements: time, space, body and relation to the public.
Our performances and special events aim to create a flow. We like to open the stage, and to break the distance between the artists and the audience.
Make the visitors wander and interact, from corner to corner, and open-stages of performing arts!
Weekly workshops, from 1.30 hours to a full day, our activities are exploring all the different art & craft practice by giving a unique opportunity of discovery!
Break with your working day by practicing a new creative craft, focusing on manual activities and socializing outside of a professional environment. Change your mind and complete a design object!
Similar to a museum shop, our concept store is a unique space proposing limited and exclusive goodies, decoration, art objects, art books, art supplies, and many other playful, colorful and interesting curiosities.
Showcase of our Arts center, this store aims to give visibility to selected local handcraft artists/artisans, by season, proposing limited creations, Made in Cambodia!
OUR NEXT EVENTS
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SEASON
FRENCH PLASTERER | SCULPTOR
Originally from the South of France and a craftsman from father to son, Roma Garzonio is an autodidact and discovered his attraction for art in his Roman wanderings. Roma is now an artist.
Passionate and thinking outside of the frame, Romain Garzonio has started to explore and experiment with plaster in unexpected ways. He imagines the construction with a different vision and likes to twist traditional materials such as plaster and plasterboard.
“Plaster is noble and pure, both fragile and solid, it’s a capricious material.”
