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
Exhibition “Empty Forest” by Tuan Andrew Nguyen
The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre
15 Nguyen U Di Street, District 2
Come to a solo exhibition by Tuan Andrew Nguyen which showcases film, sculpture, photography and performance – revealing a landscape where the industry of ailing spiritual beliefs is feeding the most wretched of human desires, to irreversible effect.
