HÀ NỘI — The Vincom Centre for Contemporary Art (VCCA) in Hà Nội will host the two solo exhibitions tomorrow, Bicycles by Vietnamese-born French artist Trần Thu Vân, and Ellipses by Hà Mạnh Thắng, a prominent Vietnamese artist.
Bicycles is Vân’s first solo installation exhibition in Việt Nam. All of her work in this exhibition is brand new. Inspired by a song from the artist’s childhood, the exhibition contains self-identification and history of the artist, as well as the desire to create a fictional world.
Ellipses presents new work from Thắng, inspired by poems from the Middle Age Chinese poets Li Bai and Du Fu. His work has the features of Western modern art, yet still holds an Asian spirit.
Both exhibitions will run until February. VCCA is located on level B1, Block R3, Vincom Mega Mall Royal City, 72A Nguyễn Trãi Road, Thanh Xuân District. — VNS
