“A gap between two houses”
Opening: Thurs 11 June, 8pm
Nha San Duc
“A gap between two houses” is directly taken from the technical drawing of the exhibition space (two combined traditional vietnamese land houses), the artists have received from the gallery. Seduced by this expression describing a left over space between two walls with no function neither access, but still being part of the room structure, a starting point for the show was found. A selection of existing and newly created works for this specific conditions will be presented.
The video work “Museum” by Karine Fauchard creates a fictional art museum where the exponates are shells, exhibited in their natural environment, a sand consisting of millions of similar shells. This video work is the result of an improvisation and could be read as an ironic metaphore of how the art world is functioning.
For another work, “The fridge exhibition”, Lazar Lyutakov invited artists from the viennese art scene as well as local artists from Hanoi to participate in a group exhibition taking place in a switched on household fridge.
Participants in “The fridge exhibition”:
Nguyễn Huy An, Hoàng Minh Đức, Marita Fraser, Michael Gumhold, Bopha Xorigia Lê Huy Hoàng, Leopold Kessler, Alex Lawler, Maximilian Pramatarov, Phạm Khắc Quang, Maria Stimm.
This show will mark the 5th collaboration of the Vienna based artists.
