Colombian artist explores social inequality in modern art show

Update: September, 13/2012 - 09:03

HCM CITY (VNS) — A solo exhibition of contemporary art by Colombian Johanna Calle will open today at the San Art Gallery in HCM City.

The exhibition is part of Irregular Hexagon: Colombian Art in Residence, a project consisting of six distinct solo exhibitions by Colombian artists in Morocco, Israel, Australia, Turkey, Singapore and Viet Nam.

Johanna's works refer to her work over the last decade, with plants being central to its imagery.

"This is not only because in Colombia the so-called war on drugs is waged mainly in the countryside, but also because the roots of social inequality can be traced back to the moment where the landscape was razed down and its people subjugated, their cosmogony and language replaced by the colonizer's," a press release says.

The exhibition will remain open until October 11.-VNS
