The man with the ‘Bag’
Till 14 January, 2018
An installation exhibition, ‘Portrait of Life, Episode VI – The Bag’, of artist Tran Duc Quy is on at L’Espace till 14 January.
As a kid, the artist was language-delayed, often wandered and played on his own, with various objects, trees, colored chalks and modeling clay. Those maybe the signs of what they call nowadays ‘autism’. The grown-ups in his hometown, who live simply, don’t understand kids like that, and they often told him: Maybe we have to crack open your skull and tilt it upside down to see what’s in his head?
In this exhibition, he finds the answer with his own sculpture language.
L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien St, Hanoi. Open: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
