HCMC – Exhibition “Interface” by Oanh Phi Phi

Opening: May 10, 6 pm
Exhibition: May 10 – Jul 21, 10 am – 7 pm (Tue – Sun)
The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, 15 Nguyen U Di, Thao Dien, District 2,

In the work of Oanh Phi Phi, lacquer is a material of not only physical, but also visceral density.

In ‘Interface’ we present two of her major pictorial installations – Specula, an immersive lacquered tunnel akin to stepping in to a glowing womb; and Palimpsest, which personifies tools of producing images (where projections magnifying glass paintings recall the lens structure of a human eye). What is most dazzling about these two ‘paintings as sculptures’ in this exhibition is the suggestion that these artworks are analogous to organs of a body, indeed their ‘shape’, their ‘skin’, their ‘interface’ infers protection, purpose and ultimately, an identity.

Tickets:

For adults: 50,000VND; For students: 40,000VND (with appropriate student ID); For children under 12: free (with appropriate ID)

There is no entrance fee applied on the opening night.
