Wings of Throne features eight pairs of Svay Sareth’s soft sculptures in the form of camouflage dragon’s wings. It was said that the monarch in current power is often supported by wings allowing a dragon to fly through Cambodia’s history, spanning forty-five years. These wings are thus deemed as a necessary vessel to Cambodian society, wherein the rules to support a master crown once fraught with corruption and bloodshed, are now idealized to be upheld with honour and true liberation. Through elements of satire accompanied with touch-friendly material choices, the artist presents the dilemma and diorama of a post-war dream for artistic freedom.
