Nguyen The Son
Hanoi, Vietnam , 1978
As if a debtor to the city, I tirelessly seek out and decipher the tenous linkages between the remaining visual signs of the past etched upon the facades of the structures and thing that that arrive all at once, then all of disappear in the relentless spiraling circle of today’s consumption society. It can be silk painting, photography, calligraphy, installation art, videos or even a new visual language I call photo relief. Each artistic project raises a question to me and the audience about Hanoi’s values, the values of cultural and living spaces that we used to have and trying to build today, and what they will become in the future.
