Manzi and San Art present Lingering at the Peculiar Pavilion, the first solo exhibition by Saigon artist Vo Tran Chau.Â
Following a six-month residency at San Art in Saigon in mid-2015, Tran Chau created a body of work encompassing embroidered images, fabric sculptures, and a form of mosaic painting rarely seen in Vietnam. Focusing on long con, the ritual clothing worn by the Nguyen kings, the last emperor dynasty of Vietnam, Tran Chau has managed to link the context of the past with the the present day. Her solo exhibition creates an illusory space between forgetting and remembering, between current affairs and autobiographical elements, to create a discourse on the psychology of the times that seem to embody a recurrent uneasiness, looping between past and future generations.
The exhibition will run from Mar. 4 to Apr. 3 at Manzi Art Space, 14 Phan Huy Ich, Ba Dinh, Hanoi. Entrance is free and the opening reception will be at 6.30pm on Mar. 4. The exhibition is supported by the Danish Embassy (CDEF)./.
