Art show reflects on insentience

Update: February, 27/2014 - 10:05
HA NOI (VNS)  — Visual artists Le Giang and Le Hoang Bich Phuong make existential queries with their latest installations and drawings in an exhibition called Above Under Sky.

The exhibition opens at Manzi Art Space on March 2.

Organisers say that through a series of simple but intriguing installations and drawings, Above Under Sky will transform the space around in ways that urge the audience to find out layers hidden behind every artwork.

Phuong veers slightly away from her previous works, which were deftly painted in subtle water-colour tones. This time, her creations take human shapes that are vague and colourless, reflecting the insentience of humankind.

Like Phuong's, Giang's work is also an exploration into the multiple layers of personal conflicts, seeking answers to the question: What is a perfect world?"

Above Under Sky will remain open from 6.30pm on Sunday to March 15 at the gallery on 14 Phan Huy Ich Street. Admission to the show, which is supported by the Prince Claus Fund for Culture & Development and the Cultural Development and Exchange Fund (CDEF) of the Danish Embassy, is free.— VNS
