Bitter Melons/Bitter Pills

Real Art Ways presents a solo exhibition of recent work by 2021 Real Art Award recipient Joe Bun Keo.

Connecticut-based artist Joe Bun Keo uses found and altered objects to create poetic installations and assemblages. His recent work is informed by personal experiences with mental health, debt, and Khmer (Cambodian) – American identity. In bitter melons / bitter pills, the artist presents a new body of work that focuses on sentimental, cultural and utilitarian values within the discussion of materiality and identity.

Joe Bun Keo (b. 1987) is a Khmer (Cambodian) – American artist living and working in Connecticut. His work “unpacks intergenerational trauma through the scope of ‘neomaterialism’ and the concept of ‘power objects.’”
