LANNE DU LIVRE: THE MAKING OF A GRAPHIC NOVEL


Exhibition of Tians drawings and strips

Tian was born three days after the fall of Phnom Penh in 1975. From his first
years, he didnt keep any precise memories , but he collected the testimony
of his father in order to make a graphic novel. It has resulted in Lanne
du livre, a trilogy that tells his familys history. While the third volume of
Lanne du livre will be released in France, the French Institute is presenting an exhibition tracing the artistic journey of Tian, from the very first
sketches to the final plates.
Besides this exhibition, Tian will give a conference about his work on Tuesday 15 December (see page 40). He will also take part in a series of workshops organized in partnership with Ngos Sipar and Phare Ponleu Selpak.
