The themes of Cambodia's tragic history are the focus of new work by L.A.-based artist Andrew Hem. The title of the show, One Leads to Another, is taken from the concept of the Butterfly Effect , "where small differences in decisions or movements can produce large variations in the long-term outcome of events, Hem creates a series of "what if" scenarios where one storyline diverges at the moment of a seemingly minor event resulting in two significantly different outcomes. In this case the artist imagines if the violent Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia had never taken power and how the lives of the people would have been altered."
Artist: Andrew Hem
One Leads to Another runs through February 13, 2010 at LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles.
