Participating artists have meticulously and elaborately built 6 installations, sculptures, and interaction works named: Ocean; Field; Tornado; Shelter; Secret box; Family. The works are made from used plastic products such as straws, nylon, water bottles, household appliances.

All create a world of colourful plastic art, but also a prompt and much needed reminder of the real world where plastic is ubiquitous: in nature, in daily life, in and on our bodies, in life of all creatures including humans.

HCMC-Exhibition “Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)”

VinGallery, 6 Le Van Mien, Thao Dien, District 2

Yohei Yama returns to Vin Gallery with his second solo project with the gallery, four years after “The Power of Semiosis” (2015). Yama derives his works from nature, spinning the waves of the cosmos and webbing together the rhythm of natural forces. His oeuvre is distinguishable by its repetition and layering of lines, colours, patterns and more often than not creating optical effects that swell and vibrate.

“Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)” envisions the universe and it’s life-cycles where the future becomes the present and the present becomes the past.
