Hanoi-Installation Exhibition “Deo cay giua duong” by Yen Nang

VICAS Art Studio, 32 Hao Nam Street, Dong Da District,

On showcase is an installation work using pebbles by artist Yen Nang who is always interested in works of art of a “fleeting” nature, considering the process of creating the work more important than the result (with many newly-finished works removed right after).
