ECO – SUS Art Project
Inspired by the fascinating architectural space and natural landscape of the Interdisciplinary Science and Education Center (ICISE), designed by renowned French architect Jean François Milou, our ECO-SUS project is our way of continuing our dialogue with issues such as ecological nature and sustainable development. Most of the artists who participated in this project have previously been working on recent public art projects in Phuc Tan and Phung Hung in Hanoi. As this project has been expanding to include a more diverse range of both artists and artistic mediums from three regions, we would like to give the viewers a new perspective of this unique architectural space and landscape, with new reflections and points of view through art in an oasis of science, amid Bình Định, in the center of Việt Nam, in the world of Covid-19.
ICISE has, for many years, been known to attract the world’s most famous scientists and Nobel Laureates, who have come to exchange ideas and develop their projects. This has encouraged us to consider this one-of-a-kind place as an interesting inspiration and an artistic destination also; a conceptual meeting of scientists and artists who may take very different approaches but who all want to explore and contemplate the world, its natural laws, and the balance between the physical and spiritual worlds. Under the exhibition title ECO-SUS, we would like to have a meaningful dialogue on real sustainable development, its history and wonder would it be achievable in an intelligent way in this globalization. Does Science and Art need each other?
Hopefully, over the next four months of the project’s exhibition, this space will become an attractive destination for the local public and art-loving visitors who want to explore and engage with our spontaneous dialogue.
