About the Event 关于活动

Vietnamese artist Thao Nguyen PHAN has a great eye. Through literature, philosophy and daily life, she observes ambiguous issues in social convention, history, and tradition. Through a combination of painting, video, performance, and installation, she manages to blend the universal and the local, reality and fiction in a poetic and visually powerful way, which opens new spaces for reflection. No Jute Cloth for the Bones, Mute Grain and Dream of March and August, the trilogy from “Mute Grain” project, are about a tragic event when Vietnamese farmers were forced to grow jute instead of rice during the Japanese occupation of then French Indochina from 1940-1945, which led to large-scale famine and death. Her previous project Poetic Amnesia discussed the introduction of the Latin alphabet as a writing system in Vietnam and the complex implication of this historical process, which tells stories of cultural loss and gain, national amnesia, and violence.

In this Walk & Talk, artist Thao Nguyen PHAN and curator Zoe BUTT will walk through artworks with the audience, starting with the those in the exhibition, turning to her research behind the scenes, sharing previous or future projects.

来自越南的艺术家潘涛阮有着可观的洞察力。通过文学、哲学和日常生活表象,潘涛阮观察着社会惯例、历史和传统模棱两可的种种问题。通过绘画、录像、表演和装置艺术的结合,她以一种富有诗意和视觉冲击力的方式,创造融合了世界和地方、虚和实的叙事形式,为反思开辟了新空间。如“Mute Grain”项目三部曲:《被剥皮的黄麻杆》(No jute cloth for the bones),《无声的谷粒》(Mute Grain)和《三月和八月的梦》(Dream of March and August)讲述了日本占领的1940年至1945年期间、越南农民被迫种植黄麻而不是大米导致的大规模饥荒与死亡;“诗意失忆”(Poetic Amnesia)项目讨论了越南引入拉丁字母作为书写系统这一历史进程背后复杂的含义,讲述了文化得失、民族失忆和暴力的故事。

本次游读,艺术家潘涛阮(Thảo-Nguyên Phan)将与策展人佐伊•巴特(Zoe Butt)一起,和观众穿梭于作品间,从展览中的作品入手,梳理艺术家的创作脉络,讲述作品背后的故事,展开讨论与分享。
