  • Solo Exhibition by Vo Tran Chau

    Solo Exhibition by Vo Tran Chau

    12:00 AM,13 April - 11:59 PM,14 May

    Salon Saigon, 6D Ngo Thoi Nhiem, D.3,, HCMC

    ‘Lingering at the Peculiar Pavilion’ is the title of the first solo exhibition by artist Vo Tran Chau. Following a six-month residency at Sàn Art Laboratory in mid-2015, Tran Chau has been tracing a few of the descendants of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945) to create ‘Water-image’. This work remakes the Long con, the emperor’s ritual garment, by sowing together patches of the descendants’ clothing. Continuing this research, linking the past with the present, Tran Chau develops a body of work consisting of embroidered paintings, fabric sculptures, and a unique form of mosaic tapestry / painting not often seen in Vietnam. This solo exhibition creates an illusory space between forgetting and remembering, between current affairs and autobiographical elements, to create discourse on the psychology of our very era that seems to embody a recurrent uneasiness, looping between the past and future.
