HCMC- Float, rest, glide, accelerate: exhibition walk-through with artist Pham Minh Hieu

May 4, 03:30 pm – 05 pm,

Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyen Van Thu, Dakao, D1

From the organizer:

An exhibition of exhibitions, Pham has created ‘total installations’ with theoretical underpinnings in speculative realism and new materialism. ‘Untitled (7 Events)’ unfolds in fragments that float, rest, glide and accelerate over three floors, each event becoming entangled with the beholder, trapping them in the tension between their own subjectivity and the conflict that exists in the unknown objects themselves. Where the boundaries among different disciplines and genres are fraying and transforming, the ensemble of events collapses hierarchies between modes of perception, materials, and making, guiding us into the zones of the unknown.

* This will be the last public programme for ‘Untitled (7 Events)’, which runs through the 4th of May, 2024.

From the organizer:

The solo exhibition “Hoạ Chiêu Hồn – Necromancy Painting” by artist Pham Tran Viet Nam embarks on an artistic journey that vividly portrays the human experience in all its complexities: trapped, yearning, or tormented souls of both the living and the departed.

Drawing inspiration from war, local historical narratives, global dilemmas, and haunted memories, Pham Tran Viet Nam creates “Họa Chiêu Hồn.” The collection comprises 17 artworks that transcend the boundaries of reality and illusion, reflecting the tumultuous emotions, precariousness, and agony of the contemporary world.

Pham Tran Viet Nam’s works, created between 2017 and 2024, are currently on display at 22 Gallery. This presentation not only introduces a fresh viewpoint on art to its audience but also acts as a reflection on life, an effort to heal and soothe restless souls.

An exhibition of exhibitions, Untitled (7 Events) has theoretical underpinnings in speculative realism¹ and new materialism².
