HCMC-Exhibition “8♡” by Truc-Anh

Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyen Van Thu Street, District 1

For his third solo exhibition at the gallery, Truc-Anh tells a complex and nuanced story of transformation and awakening.

The title of the show exemplifies these dynamics, as a reference to the video games of Truc-Anh’s childhood, while also alluding to metaphysical dimensions.

In particular, the symmetrical number eight – representing a perfect loop and infinity – appears in many of the works, while references to rebirth, healing and impermanence, interspersed with images of the ego, vanity and conceit, are also prevalent.

HCMC- Exhibition “In One’s Breath – Nothing Stands Still” by Tuan Mami

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, 15 Nguyen U Di, Thao Dien, District 2

The exhibition is Hanoi-based artist Tuấn Mami’s first-ever solo show in Ho Chi Minh City.

The project is inspired by the ancient Muong epic ‘De Dat De Nuoc’ (‘The Birth of Soil and Water’), from which emerges a belief that there is spirituality in all beings, that the creation of the world is constantly in a state of chaos where humans struggle to cohabit harmoniously with other creatures, and especially with themselves.

Tickets: VND35,000 - VND25,000 (with appropriate student ID) - free for children under 16 (with appropriate ID)
