HA NOI (VNS)  — Ha Noi-based visual artist Nguyen Tran Nam will showcase his new series of text installations, video art and paintings in his latest exhibition that will open on January 6 at Manzi Art Space.

Titled Nhung Chuong Vo (The Broken Chapters), the art show will include a looped muted video of a bullet ripping through the air, as well as handwritten texts that will be hung for display, describing the exact moment before, during, and after the bullet is launched.

A home video of the moment a father and son bond, which has been found and slowed down; and a group of nearly washed out photographs of young men, smiling, will be presented at the exhibition.

Rooted in the stories of his own life, but reaching out to tell the stories of others, Nam's work is personal yet universal, dealing with themes such as violence, death and the father-son relationship.

The Broken Chapters will be on display from January 6 to 25 at 14 Phan Huy Ich Street.— VNS
