HCMC – Artist Nghia Dang is holding an exhibition titled "Scenes of the imago" at The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre in HCMC's District 2, introducing a collection of sculptures borrowing the form of objects that bear the familiarity of a house.
In the exhibition, Nghia Dang sets a stage where images and disconnected scenes of shadow in his subconsciousness are intertwined and revealed.
The sculptures are scattered around the gallery like characters from a story. In the corner of the room, a diary and a series of drawings filled with scribbles and sketches that seem to have no link to each other. They might be rapid jottings of dreams that appear and then disappear or a fictional scene from the artist's imagination.
The entire stage serves as an entrance into the shadow of the artist's mind. Curiosity makes the viewers bend down, squint, explore, observe and smell as they walk through the objects. Each artwork engages the viewers in a game of hide and seek full of riddles and symbols.
The objects in the exhibition are not distant and apathetic decorations that only seek to satisfy retinal art as in the case of still-life paintings. The viewers are not only the on-looking spectator but also an integral part of the works. Their interaction, discovery and interpretation breathe life into the works.
"Scenes of the imago" is part of the program Materialize 2018 initiated by The Factory and co-sponsored by Indochina Arts Partnership. This program aims to provide exhibition opportunities for Vietnamese artists over the age of 25 that have not had a lot of chances to showcase their works.
The exhibition lasts until January 27, 2019.
