From the organizer:

This is a group exhibition by 15 artists specializing in multiple artistic disciplines.

The questions related to our existences remains unsettling. Although arts cannot provide us valid answers to these philosophical questions, it gives us individual insights. And gathering these separated perspective would give each person a different overview of arts and aesthetics. Hence, each of the milestones in the creative practicing is like an Event Horizon – where the inertia changes.

Each artist has an individual identity, and distinctive personality represented through his/her practices and artistic perspective. They are the artists who inherit the features of traditional art and bring it into experimental practices from the way of using medium to building concept.

It is the intertwinement of the two seemingly separated territories that have created distinctive personalities. For example, artists like Vu Xuan Dong, Oanh Phi Phi and Trieu Khac Tien have created modern interfaces on lacquer based on traditional techniques. In addition, those who practice on new media such as Tran Hau Yen The, Phan Hai Bang, Vu Kim Thu, Trieu Minh Hai, Pham Khac Quang and Nguyen The Son­ are always on the path to search for their personal identities and then finally discover themselves existing within the material as well as in the notions of culture and history. This is also enriched by the vital role of the young artists like Ngo Thu Huong, Can Van An… They do not only inherit the the seniors’ practices but also gradually establish their own journey. The emerging artists are essential joints for the continuous growth of arts and initiate the shifting phase within the context of the contemporary art scene.

From these supposedly different artistic practices, any kind of combination would create an exclusive unity that does not depend solely on the orthodox views of the past and tradition.
