The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

15 Nguyen U Di, Thao Dien, District 2

The exhibition features 15 artists from Vietnam, Thailand, Bangladesh, China and the UK, curated by The Factory and Inlen Photo Gallery.

This exhibition seeks to engage the behaviour and consequence of thinking that machines have become the ‘Nature’ we study and prioritise. It examines the current times in which we live, sharing the work of artists who are both in awe, and critical, of the patterns, substance, psychological relations and historical fictions between assumptions of Nature and the Machine.
