Sàn Art gives warm welcome to the artists-in-residence of the 4th session of ‘Sàn Art Laboratory': Le Phi Long (Hue-HCMC), Lai Dieu Ha (Ha Noi) and Nguyen Van Du (Ho Chi Minh City) who began their 6 month residency on the 6th December, 2013.
After initial research and experiment, the artists are ready to reveal their first explorations to public in an OPEN STUDIO on January 25th, 5.30pm at Sàn Art Laboratory, 40/18 Pham Viet Chanh, Binh Thanh District.
Come visit Phi Long who will share Ho Chi Minh City’s story of 300-year development, as he’s working with inspiration from rice, green spaces, geology and his vision for a more sustainable urban life. Dieu Ha will treat visitors with walnut seeds, a form that explains her interest in human psychology and mental trauma of those who suffer from divorce, how it influences their children, and her seeking of a possible relief therapy. Van Du explores another extreme of life – death, violence and existence – through images of slaughter from a butchery, of which findings will be shared through his notes, sketches, research documents, video and previous artwork.
