Exhibition: 25 – 28 Jun 2011
The Goethe-Institut Hanoi invites you to the short exhibition “Chicken: Chip, Chic, Chicky” by the artist Dinh Cong Dat. “Chicken: chip, chic, chicky” is an installation that is made from 100 to 150 paper-mache chickens.
The materials for making the paper-mache chickens – old newspapers, glue and string – are cheap and emphasize what is of particular importance for Dinh Cong Dat: simplicity.
Through the interaction of the chickens, the accompanying music by composer Nguyen Xuan Son (SonX) and special lighting, this exhibition promises to be an unusual experience.
Dinh Cong Dat was born in Hanoi and graduated in sculpture studies at the University of Fine Arts in Hanoi. With his sculptures and oversized insects he is known far beyond the borders of Vietnam. He has lived and worked in Paris and New York, and has exhibited there as well as in Dubai, London and other cities.
Dinh Cong Dat will be present during the exhibition to answer questions and to demonstrate on request his paper-mache techniques.
