EXHIBITIONSHanoi-”Sense” – Solo Exhibition by Sculptor Luong Van Viet
Opening: June 5, 6.30 pm
Exhibition: Jun 6 – Jul 5
Manzi Art Space, 14 Phan Huy Ich Street
“Sense” acts as an invitation for the audience to come into contact with the work using all of their senses. They can, for example, walk around and/or through the work, look at them from afar, or come closer and pick them up for a more intimate inspection.
Luong Van Viet, 39, graduated from the Vietnam University of Art in 2002 and is a famous sculptor in Hanoi.
Using minimal shapes and colours to create a sophisticated and elegant contrast, Viet’s works explore and push boundaries between spaces and forms, revealing the philosophy of coexistence and human existentialism.
