During nine years in Vietnam, Lawrence D’Attilio has become friends with many young educated women and heard stories about their challenges in making the life-long decisions, which has inspired him to create “The New Global Women” – a painting and sculpture exhibition exploring the tensions of young women who have had to make difficult choices in life.

The exhibition consists of 32 single fine art photographs surrounding a centerpiece installation artwork entitled “Challengers”, and the installation artwork itself is made up of 24 ceramic photographs of women faces and 23 transparent photographs of Ao Dai. Using camera-made images re-constructed into abstract expressions as well as a cross media installation work, Lawrence D’Attilio depicts the women’s tensions with their own twisting of form, color and elements of minimal narrative in a way that challenges orthodox concepts of photographic presentation.

“The New Global Women” ran from 1 – 14 Nov at Heritage Space. Take a virtual tour around the exhibition here:
