Hanoi-Workshop on making lanterns from Do paper

The series of works appearing in the exhibition “Leaf Picking in the Ancient Forest” by Vo Tran Chau is the journey of picking up the lost things, weaving the memories slowly – in contrast to the rapid disappearance of the old architectural construction make way for today’s rapid urban development.
