Zoé Olsommer Exhibition and Open Studio

14 October 2022 - 16 October 2022

Zoé Olsommer graduated from the School of Photography in Vevey, Switzerland.

She spent a total of 9 years in Vietnam where she discovered and learnt the refined art of lacquer painting (“sơn mài“ literally meaning “to paint and to sand”).

She now uses this traditional technique to address contemporary issues that concerns her, such as overdevelopment and plastic waste.

In 2019 she relocated to Penang, where she lives with her family.

Zoe will be on site at Coex doing demonstrations and available to answer questions on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th October 2pm-4pm. The exhibition can be visited during Coex opening hours: 14th (Fri) 10am-6pm, 15th (sat) 10am-10pm, 16th (sun) 10am-6pm.
