From Heritage Space:

Heritage Space proudly present MAP-exTalk 2 “Cover / Limit” with a presentation by artist-photographer Phan Quang from Ho Chi Minh city (Vietnam). It is a part of the exchange series in “Month of Art Practice 2017” by Heritage Space.


For many years, Phan Quang has developed his photography language (as his main artistic mean) which is not only a channel of expressing a particular aesthetic perspective, but also for discovering and examining the society. By this way, the artist raises questions and doubts, opening possible dialogue among social classes, and building the capacity for appraisal and social criticism which is seriously missing in many Vietnamese generations.

Phan Quang’s photography not only represents a visible reality, but also reveal the slices from many angles of it at the same time or space following the regulation of an image. They can elicit and reveal the single fate blurred or overwhelmed by communism, or operate “traumas” ignored or denied by politics and history, complexes and prejudices in the cultural roots and instinct. Which can be recognized in the projects like “Diary farmer” (2008), “Local food” (2013 – on going), “Space limit” (2010 – 2013), and “Re/ cover” (2012 – 2016) – the latest project.


Phan Quang (b. 1976, at Bình Định, Việt Nam) is Visual artist-photographer based in Hochiminh city (Vietnam). His works have been presented at solo showcases, such as ‘A Farmer’s Diary’ in Galerie Quynh, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2010), ‘Adaptations’ at Koganecho Bazaar, Yokohama, Japan (2013), ‘Space/Limit’ by San Art, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2013) and RE/COVER, curated by Nguyen Nhu Huy, BLANC Art Space, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2016). He has been participated into important international exhibitions and events at ASEAN-Korea Contemporary Media Art Exhibition, Kumko Museum of Art (2011, Seoul-Korea), The 5th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale, Fukuoka, Japan (2014), Triennale Photo Bangkok BACC (2015), Festival photographer in Beijing (2016).
