From the organizer:

In an era where the press and media are constantly reporting on the pandemic, people are trying to preserve their relationships through screens, and creativity is gradually being showcased online, we thought holding an actual exhibition, where people can come and interact is a risky experiment but worth trying. When the epidemic broke out, it was also when we started running from the starting line, trying to find other creative ways that fit to the stuck context. We’ve all gone through that period, when anxiety peaks and despair leaves no room for hope after that, it’s as if we’ve given up. After all that chaos, stagnation, suppression, explosion, what echoes in each of us is the blank. A blank space may be empty, or may be reserved for something, or it may be the only thing in the midst of many disturbances. However, a blank is always a fine place to start. Starting a new journey, towards different things but at the same time remembering the past. Hopefully when you stand in front of our “blank” showcase, any void in you, no matter how big or small, will be filled.

From VCCA:

Vincom Center for Contemporary Art (VCCA) opens the contemporary ceramic exhibition “Loong Koong” introducing nearly 50 artworks by two artists Trinh Vu Hieu and Bui Quoc Khanh, with the theme from traditional images to reflections of today’s society.

Well-known as an artist who restores traditional cultural values, Trinh Vu Hieu is passionate and eager to convey Vietnamese historical stories through different mediums. The artist has imbued between folk materials from the Hang Trong paintings and the technique of handmade ceramics of the Northern people to create this series of works. Going beyond a mere art form serving beliefs, these artworks with sophisticated craftsmanship still have the appearance of gods in the spiritual life since archaic times but become closer as if there were no barriers. Each of these devotional paintings on sustainable ceramics creates a different visual effect, as an old story told in a different way, interesting and full of charm.
