HÀ NỘI — An exhibition connecting various contemporary photographers curated by Singaporean photographer Zhuang Wubin is ongoing in Hà Nội.
The exhibition features work by Lê Xuân Phong, Maai Faam, Nguyễn Uyên Minh, Quỳnh Lam, Đỗ Mạnh Cường, Hoàng Nguyên, Nam Nghiêm and Hoàng Minh Trang.
Since 2013, Wubin has conducted four photo project workshops in Việt Nam. Over the years, many of the workshop participants have kept in touch.
On the theme of this exhibition, Wubin wishes to highlight the centrality of desire in making art. Without desire, it is impossible to make compelling work. Without the temptation of desires, there will not be risks taken, boundaries crossed. Without desire, the work loses its intimacy. In this way, desire informs the selected works here.
The exhibition Love and Desire will run until August 12 at Puppets Café, 27/189 Giảng Võ Street, Hà Nội. — VNS
