From the organizer
People of the old years – who are they, where are they, since when? Old people old time!
The photo book of photographer Hà Tương contains not only portraits of the artists from the old time, but also is the slice, the atmosphere of the era in which they used to live, love, sorrow, dedicate. There were a lot of rigmarole stories in the artist world – now through photographs, they are verified. There are things to feel nostalgic. And then there are realization, laughter, regrets is also evoked or put down!
Moved by the journey back to the old years through those portraits taken by Ha Tuong, O Kia Hanoi and O Kia Library asked permission from the author and gallery 39 of artist Le Thiet Cuong for a small display – in the massive fortune of “the reality archive man” * Hà Tường.
In this small exhibition, everything is arranged in an old-fashioned house, bring the atmosphere as familiar as a friend’s family, where the artists come and sit and sip a cup of wine together or just to be silent when life goes smoothly outside.
Visitors come here, like silent intimates, participating in the context – the spirit – the situation in the photos. Looking forward to see you, people of old years are waiting for you at Ơ Kìa!
