Opening: Thu 06 Sep, 6 pm
Exhibition: 06 Sep – 09 Oct 2012
You are invited to the installation exhibition of Le Huy Hoang, Vu Hoang Vu and Le Quang Than. 3 installations of 3 artists of 3 different generation are connected to each other by the traditional games that children often play called “Dragons in the Clouds”.
Dragons and Snakes (Le Huy Hoang)
I have drifting thoughts about dragons and its symbolic meaning recently when a friend of mine is trying to be pregnant in the Dragon year or a lot of people like to have dragon tattoos. In the old days, emperors and many nations have taken the symbol of a dragon as the symbol for power. Therefore, I finally decide to make an installation about dragons that I call it “Dragons and Snakes”. I am very excited about the combination of a snake with the dragon’s head.
Clouds (Vu Hoang Vu)
I like drawing clouds. And this is the first time I have an installation exhibition about clouds. Clouds always give me that soft and serene feeling. But is life really simple as a cloud?
Ripe (Le Quang Than)
To me, human beings are like the great fruits for life, contributing their best beauty and then fade away for younger people to shine… Life doesn’t simply exist with one certain value.
