From Nha San Collective:
The French term “mise-en-scène” originates in theater to refer to the stage arrangement of a theater production. This arrangement helps suggest and dictate the mood and atmosphere of the production, whilst expressing the direction, attitude and style of the creator.
On a daily basis, most of the elements around us follow certain regulations that have the ability to dominate and control our actions and behaviors. Unconsciously or consciously, we become both the actors and the audience, control and being controlled. By referring to the language of theater and cinema, in combination with the use of non-traditional artistic expressions, artists participating in mise-en-scène deal with those concerns. Meanwhile, they also explore the themes of their individual projects as diverse narratives.
This exhibition is the outcome of the working and exchanging process between Vietnamese artists and Japanese new media art artist Ryota Kuwakubo and curator Hiroyuki Hattori.
Participating artists: Nguyễn Phương Linh, Nguyễn Thuỷ Tiên, Phùng Tiến Sơn, Tuấn Mami, Nguyễn Quốc Thành, Nguyễn Trần Nam.
Communication partner: Hanoi Grapevine
Nhà Sàn COLLECTIVE is not a museum, a gallery or an international culture institute where completed work are presented by established artists. Just like Nhà Sàn Studio before, it is a working studio to nurture where artists can create, collaborate, be given advice, critiques, and have chances to meet with international artists, curators. Works that are presented at open studio every month could be finished or not, but the process of developing idea and working to improve the quality of the art work for local artists is what Nhà Sàn COLLECTIVE focuses on.
If you are interested and curious about experimental art, and want to have conversation with the working artists, please visit
