Hanoi-”Double Ghosts”: Screening & Talk with George Clark


Ju 2, 7 pm
DOCLAB, No. 11, sub-lane 12, lane 378 Thuy Khue Street

From DOCLAB:

With great pleasures, Hanoi Doclab presents a program with artist/curator George Clark who will talk about his expanded practice with film from projection performances to exhibitions and show his new film “Double Ghosts”.

“Double Ghosts” is a multi-part project that explores the potential of unrealised and fragmented histories from animist cinematic traditions in Taiwan to a lost film made by Chilean filmmaker Raul Ruiz. The project was first exhibited as part of the 2018 Taiwan Biennial.

The project takes as its starting point an unfinished film shot by Raúl Ruiz in Taiwan in 1995 inspired by Taoist philosophy. The project was filmed at Chin Pao San cemetery with a Taiwanese cast and crew but never finished. Shot on 35mm film Double Guosts is staged as a series of actions seeking to reactivate this lost film following traces across the Pacific from Ruiz’s birthplace in Puerto Montt to the mountain cemetery in Taiwan.

George Clark is in Vietnam as part of the British Council’s Heritage of Future Past project doing research for new project and preparing for a future workshop with doclab.

Hanoi-Experimental Music Night: “Blurred Boundary”

Jul 6, 8 pm
L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street

The search for new sounds, new techniques for playing instruments or producing sounds with everyday objects creates great enthusiasm as well as the uniqueness in experimental music. The boundaries between musical genres are becoming more fragile; the genres are mixed flexibly due to the incessant creativity of the composers; composing and improvising techniques are used interchangeably and support each other ingeniously; the image connected to sound is more and more present. For this exceptional evening, L’Espace presents “Blurred Boundary”, the works of a new generation of Vietnamese composers, together with guest artist Jean-David Cailouët from the Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of Music, Bangkok – Thailand.

Program:

– Nguyễn Thùy Dung – 16-string zither
– Hà Thúy Hằng – 16-string zither
– Nguyễn Thanh Huyền – 16-string zither
– Nguyễn Thùy Chi – Monocorde
– Hương DonNa – Moon lute/Objects
– Duy Rùa – Jaw harp & Flute
– Tuấn Nị – Violon
– Nguyễn Hữu Hải Duy – Electronic
– Nguyễn Hồng Giang – Electronic/Visual
– Lương Huệ Trinh – Electronic/Visual
– Guest artist: Jean-David Caillouët – Electronic/Visual from Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of Music, Bangkok

Ticket price 210 000 VND
Ticket price for members 130 000 VND
Ticket price for students 100 000 VND
Discounts applicable until 05.07.2019
