Installation art exhibition opened in town

Phi Vu

French artists Pierre​ ​Larauza​ and Emmanuelle​ ​Vincent have joined forces with Vietnamese Belgian artist Thy Nguyen Truong Minh to put on an exhibition of installation art at the HCMC Museum of Fine Arts in HCMC’s District 1. 

The exhibition entitled “Enthusiastic Transformation” is meant to evoke a poetic image of Vietnam in the period of urbanization and strong development from different angles through painting, dance and installation arts by the efforts from the three artists and students from HCMC University of Fine Arts.

As part of the cooperation project called “La centrifugeuse” (Vietnamese name: May xay sinh to”) by three countries – Vietnam, France and Belgium, the exhibition serves as a bridge to bring the artists close together and strengthen cultural exchanges among Vietnamese, French and Belgian artists.

Thy Nguyen Truong Minh said in an encounter with the Daily late last week that though he was born and brought up in the Belgian capital city of Brussels, he has long cherished his dream of returning to Vietnam to explore his roots. 

His educational background has been influenced by both Vietnamese and Belgian cultures and he embraces a passion for carrying out art projects on cross-cultural collaboration at a young age, simply because he has a crush on Vietnamese culture and art, the 36-year-old artist added.

Meanwhile, the French-based artists Pierre​ ​Larauza and Emmanuelle Vincent are co-founders of the French-Belgian dance troupe T.r.a.n.s.i.t.s.c.a.p.e. Recently, the dance troupe has teamed up with female Vietnamese rap star Suboi to stage a contemporary dance gig called “Urban Distortion” in HCMC as part of the Europe meets Asia in Contemporary Dance Festival.

The exhibition, under the patronage of Wallonie-Bruxelles International, is available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every weekday except Monday, lasting until this Friday.

Admission to the exhibition is free. The HCMC Fine Arts Museum is located at 97 Pho Duc Chinh Street in District 1.
