HA NOI – (VNS) New work by local artists will be presented at an exhibit that opens to the public tonight in Ha Noi.
Entitled Living Jewel, the exhibit includes artist Le Huy Hoang's latest installation Rain, made from cabbage sprouts, acupuncture needles and nylon threads.
With the support of a lighting system, the needles look like rain over the green sprouts.
Among the other items on display is an Italian Vespa scooter with nacre-inlaid body produced by sculptor Dinh Cong Dat.
To accompany the art, composer Luong Hue Trinh will present her experimental audio work Tro Lai (Come Back).
She draws on both traditional melodies and sounds drawn from daily life to create a unique melange of history and modernity.
Living Jewel will be shown at the Nguy Nhu Kon Tum Auditorium, 19 Le Thanh Tong Street, from 6pm tonight until 3pm tomorrow (Sep 13).
The display is a supporting activity of the Viet Nam Davines Hair Show&Contest 2012 which will take place in Ha Noi on September 20. – VNS
