Japan meets Vietnam in 8+8 art show

By Kieu Giang in HCMC

Sixteen artists, eight from Vietnam and eight from Japan, have collaborated for an art show at HCMC’s Museum of Fine Arts.

“2010 Japan & Vietnam Contemporary Art Exhibition 8+8” displays work from La Nhu Lan, Lam Triet, Nguyen Minh Phuong, Tran Trung Tin, Hua Thanh Binh, Tran Van Thao, Nguyen Thanh Mai and Khai Doan and  Takata Yoshiki, Hiratsuka Ryoichi, Tatsukuhama Yohichiro, Takashima Yoshiyuki, Kudo Mashide, Miwa Aki, Hashimoto Kenji and Suganuma Minoru.

Takata Yoshiki’s art installation is a small room with a chair, a fan and some thin white thin curtains with landscapes projected on them. He took the photos in small villages in Indonesia and France and said the fan represents the wind in Indonesia.

Female artist Miwa Aki uses green. Light green describes the spring wind in Japan and dark green describes the twilight.

Another female artist, Thanh Mai, paints old women’s faces and cats.

Tran Thi Huynh Nga, owner of Blue Space Contemporary Arts Center, the  organizer of the show, said the collaboration had been really positive and there would be more to come.

The exhibition starts on Friday until August 29 at 97A  Pho Duc Chinh Street, District 1, HCMC.
