EXHIBITION

Hanoi-“Breathing TUBE” – A Dialogue between Architecture and Contemporary Art




Opening: June 6, 4pm
Exhibition: June 7-July 7, 10am – 5pm (weekdays)
VUUV Building (3rd – 4th floor), 342 Ba Trieu Street

From the organizer:

According to the data collected from the Hanoi cadastre, during the first half urbanisation in the early 20th century (1885-1955), there were about 30.000 parcels of land in pipe shape. The old streets were kept the same while the new ones were partitioned into standard size of 25 meters in depth along with 4 to 6 meter length of facade. Over time, the area of Hanoi has expanded enormously leading to the rise of that number of parcels. It either continues to be further subdivided or aggregated depending on the economical development. The story of these tube houses with narrow facade and fathomless depth, rooting from the old days, continues with the grow of the high-rise building and the ever-developing construction nowadays. Throughout the history of urban development for over the hundred years, the utilization of the tube house has changed due to events and the influence of globalisation.

“Breathing TUBE” is an occasion for the artists to examine different possibilities of practicing visual arts within the space of the house located on a archetypal parcel of land. For nearly a month, sixteen artists have explored and researched on the geographical history as well as the significant architecture design of VUUV to create artworks interacting with different elements of the building.
