Anida Yoeu Ali | Anida Yoeu Ali Mixes Humour, Sci-Fi and Public Confrontation

This Being Human, November 15, 2022
Anida Yoeu Ali's art mixes humour, public confrontation, and science fiction to explore issues of identity. As a Muslim Khmer woman, Anida is a minority whether she's in her native Cambodia or in the United States, where her family relocated to escape the regime of Pol Pot. She talks about her work across disciplines, from absurdist poetry to public performances such as the Buddhist Bug, where she meets the public, dressed as a large, orange worm-like creature.
