From L’Espace:

You are invited to the exhibition “The Gesture of Memories” by Florian Nguyen.

The French-Vietnamese artist Florian Nguyen (born in 1988) moved to HCMC in 2016 where he developed a visual art project consisting mainly of works drawn in black and white and installations. His drawing is characterized by a great precision of the line, from the drawing on paper to the monumental fresco.

He is currently working around the memory and processes of restoring memories. The exhibition presented in 2016 by the l’Institut français de Ho Chi Minh Ville addressed the issue of the transmission of family memory.

The exhibition “The gesture of memories” at L’Espace is an extension of the project begun with the French-Vietnamese choreographer, Sébastien Ly, about the gestural memory. It takes the form of a series of drawings and various in-situ installations.

Contemporary Dance “Beyond Absence” by Sébastien Ly will take place on 22 Apr at L’Espace.
