HÀ NỘI — French artist Jacob Reymond, who is famous for artworks inspired by music, will showcase his paintings at L’Espace from 6pm today.
The exhibition will present his acrylic and Chinese-ink paintings inspired by classic music by Jean-Sébastien Bach as well as modern tunes by Steve Reich, Pascal Dusapin, Wolfgang Rhim, Philippe Hersant or even jazz.
Writer and music researcher Jacques Amblard said: “When Reymond performs, he not only simply acts as an actor, a musician or a painter, separately, but he is a person combining the values of all those three figures. Beyond the art, the audience can find it’s a playful child, a searching man, or a metaphysical game.”
On April 3, at 6pm, Reymond will present a live performance together with two Vietnamese artists. While Reymond creates an improvisational painting, talented violinist Nguyễn Thiện Minh will perform together with contemporary dancer-choreographer Lê Mai Anh.
The free entrance exhibition will open until April 30. L’Espace is at 24 Tràng Tiền Street. — VNS
