Hanoi-Exhibition: Ruc Ra Ruc Dich

Until July 16
11 venues in Hanoi and Saigon

From the organizer

What can a face mask reveal to us about our being? Can the blood of cattle in slaughterhouses be used as painting colors? How does an empty globe stand portray our existential situation?

A response to a world in turmoil, Ruc Ra Ruc Dich exhibition establishes a multi-dimensional platform which invites you to self-explore and self-create your own narration,

This is the first pop-up exhibition series which is organized and circulated among 11 GốcLab’s venues in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The exhibition gathers around 60 artworks across nearly 10 art forms, contributed by more than 40 artists based in Vietnam and other countries, including some respected figures such as Uu Dam Tran Nguyen, Nguyen Van Du, Ha Huy Muoi and also aspiring ones such as Alectruha, Ngo Ky Duyen and Pham Anh Ngoc, etc. and many more art enthusiasts.

Ruc Ra Ruc Dich will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, but on the top of that, we hope that the exhibition will arouse a multifaceted perspective on the current state of human existence and help you steel yourself for the new normal.

Hanoi-Art exhibition: THỦY

May 19 – 24, 08:30 am – 05:00 pm
Vietnam Art Museum, 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street

From the organizer:

“I draw and paint in a desire to morph myself into being one with nature in various pitches of feeling. Watercolour, ink on silk, acrylic on canvas… help me to freely self-dilute with my own dreamy obsessions. In my works, nature is simply a visual material for me to create the form of my feelings.”
Bui Thanh Thuy graduated from the Fashion Graphic Department of University of Industrial Fine Arts in 1995.
