Linda Sok is a Cambodian-Australian artist focused on investigating the culturally and personally significant period, the Khmer Rouge Regime, which forced her family to flee Cambodia. Her practice navigates the complexities of the trauma embedded in the Cambodian diaspora and aims to shift its legacy from one focused on genocide to one of healing.

With careful considerations for cultural objects, rituals, traditions and their materiality, her practice often manifests in sculptural installations. By accessing fragments of the past, she attempts to recontextualize lost traditions and culture to allow living descendants to process the traumatic history experienced by older generations.
