Exhibition “Remnant” by Le The Lam

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

15 Nguyen U Di, Thao Dien, District 2, Ho Chi Minh City

The exhibition ‘Remnant’ brings us into Le The Lam’s own world, where lies the sorrow and anxiety of living in postwar Vietnam. In this exhibition, Le The Lam’s paintings depict different states of a ‘silent death’, using the presence of closed coffins and lingering shadow-like humans, interspersed at times with words. These are fantasy scenarios played out in the artist’s mind, situated within various imagined environments that suggest an affliction with his surroundings. In addition to his dark palette, Lam presents a combination of sculptural forms where the particular light and shadow depicted in his paintings render the ambiance walled and claustrophobic.


For adults: VND 35,000
For students: VND 25,000 (with appropriate student ID)
For children under 16: free (with appropriate ID)

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre
