The dance of space

Till 15 April
A photography exhibition by Thomas Dessein, entitled ‘Fall and Release’, will be on till 15 April at Ke Quan, 81 Xuan Dien Dist., Hanoi. Entry is free.
‘Fall and Release’ are the most essential movements for the dancer in dance training. They are also the starting point of the artist’s photographic study on space, movement and the nuance of the fall.
For this work, the artist has tried to rediscover, through the figure of the fall, this space in between the causes and consequences of a movement, where space and time is undefined and the body forgets itself to give the viewer the most absurd beauty.

The side effects of prosperity

Till 9 May

‘In One Breath’s – Nothing Stand Still’ is an exhibition of Hanoi-based artist Tuan Minh at The Factory Contemporary Arts Center till 9 May.
The exhibition borrows its inspiration from an ancient Mường epic, from which immerses a belief that there is spirituality in all beings; that the creation of the world is constantly in a state of chaos, where humans struggle to cohabit harmoniously with other creatures, and especially with themselves. Conducted on the basis of the artist’s ongoing fieldwork since 2014 in the stone mining areas of his hometown, Ha Nam, this multimedia body of work investigates and documents the pollution and significant loss of biodiversity caused by overexploitation of natural resources, and its devastating consequences on the structure of culture, and the people inhabiting this land.
The Factory Contemporary Arts Center, 15 Nguyen U Di, Thao Dien Dist., Ho Chi minh City. Ticket: VND35,000.

8-bit philosophy
Till 12 May
An exhibition ‘8♡’ by Vietnamese-French artist Truc Anh is on till 12 may at the Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyen Thu St, Da Kao, Dist.1, Ho Chi Minh CIty
Truc-Anh tells a complex and nuanced story of transformation and awakening. The artist’s practice has always been defined by his navigation of parallel terrains – the tension between personal histories and age-old wisdoms, between an egocentric need to succeed and the Buddhist philosophy of being selfless.
The title of the show exemplifies these dynamics, being a reference to the video games of Truc-Anh’s childhood while also alluding to metaphysical dimensions.
