Artist talk with Nguyen Tran Nam, Pham Dinh Tien and Rudy ‘Atjeh’ D

These three gentlemen have been on residency with ‘San Art Laboratory’ over the last 6 months, resulting in their group exhibition ‘Come to [what] end?’ – Nam has re-cast the French guillotine as a personal symbol questioning death as punishment, as sacrifice, as an act eventually memorialized but for whom? ; for Tien our fate often appears random and beyond our control, a contemplation triggered by the disappearance of Malaysian Airline 370; for Rudy his paper-cutting genius illustrates the encounter of culture and religion, between the Cham Kingdom and the Indonesian Aceh Kingdom of the Jeumpa.
