Hanoi-Exhibition “Vietnam in Cyanotype: Batch 1” by Julie Vola

Opening: Sep 14, 7 pm

Exhibition: Sep 14 – Oct 8

Ke Quan, 81b Xuan Dieu Str,

Featuring a selection of some of the artist's favorite portraits of Vietnam and its people. They come from more than a half-decade exploring Vietnam through the lens of her camera, on assignment, as a traveler and as a resident of this beautiful country.

For this collection, the artist chooses to use a 19th century cyanotype printing technique. First developed by scientist and astronomer Sir John Herschel, it was intended primarily for reproducing notes, diagrams and blueprints. These photos, in their monochrome format are, in a way, blueprints of Vietnam and its people; their simplicity and yet depth give a dreamy aspect to the prints.

Hanoi- Exhibition “Pho Moi” (New Streets) by Pham Ha Duy Khanh

Exhibition hall, 16 Ngo Quyen Street, Hoan Kiem District,

The artist’s first solo exhibition providing a rustic, genuine perspective of a country man on city streets. Through smooth, quick and generous brush strokes, Khanh’s paintings depict the joyful and chaotic modern life and convey the energy of youth.

Hanoi- Solo Exhibition “Project Habit/At” by Ruchika Wason Singh

Opening: Sep 16, 6 pm

Exhibition: Sep 16 – 30, 11:00-19:00

Huong Ngo Art Space, 3rd Floor Nola café, No. 89 Ma May Str., Hoan Kiem District.

Through the “Project Habit/At” exhibition, Ruchika Wason Singh has taken a new approach: accommodation and migration – some of the biggest problems (in the world) nowadays. Instead of portraying scenes where people sit in crowded places in buildings, Singh takes a look inside each person living in metropolitan area. Behind the modern and flashy lights of cities, the symbol of wealth and prosperity which is frequently advertised in the media, it is the problems of fitting in, the complexities of immigration/ migration, the separation of public space and the inequality between social groups. Rather than feeling happy for having met all the basic needs (in life), people tend to feel depressed and crowded in artificial places and even in the presence of mankind.

Hanoi- Photo Exhibition “Rudel 2” by Sven Marquardt

Savage, 112 Xuan Dieu Street, Tay Ho District,

Displaying photo portraits of musicians at Ostgut Booking – an artist residence for DJs in Berlin – taken by photographer Sven Marquardt from 2007 to 2017.

Sven Marquardt’s work combines formal severity and clear imagery with bleak impermanence. His photos impress us through the interaction of ease, severity and the dramatic art of monochrome contrasting.

Hanoi- Exhibition "Remote Viewing" by Sung Tieu

Nha San Collective, 15th floor, Hanoi Creative City Building, 01 Luong Yen, Hai Ba Trung District,

HCMC- Solo Exhibition “Persona” by Tuyp Tran

Dia Projects, Ground Floor, Saigon Domaine, 1057 Bình Quoi Ward 28, Binh Thanh District,

In “Persona”, Tuyp zooms out a little and raises many questions which are made visible through an exploration of religious, political and scientific narratives. Where do we get our personalities from? How do we navigate the gulf between what we think we are and how we are perceived? To what extent are we in control of this process?
