From the organizer:

“Tilted Archipelago” – a solo exhibition by artist Ha Ninh Pham – invites the audience to “jump” on an adventure journey to distant territories. Here, the horizon, a concept or boundary that splits “the sky” and “the sea”, is defined in this context in a way that does not coincide with the reality in which we are living. On the journey to that territory, the audience encounters islands or traces of life that were (intentionally) left behind. They represent individuals who are torn between self-defining and being defined. Or a simultaneous incarnation of the artist – the work – the audience between two basic roles: subject and object.

At the precise moment that we see, we are absorbed in the observation of the world we are entering.

“My work explores how we construct an understanding of a territory from afar. Since 2017, I have been working on a long-term project titled My Land, in which I grant myself an absolute power to design a world according to my rules.”

– Hà Ninh Pham –

With “Tilted Archipelago” Ha Ninh introduces a new manner of experimenting with his practices to create “entrances” that audiences can experience and interact with.
