Dia Projects

Ground Floor, Saigon Domaine, 1057 Binh Quoi Street, Ward 28, Binh Thanh District

In "Figures, forms, contraptions", Thy’s work occupies the larger gallery space, with each picture wall-mounted. Some photos give a stronger association than others, but they can only be individually viewed.

Meanwhile, Regis’ exhibit is much more unified. Videos play in loops, on screens of various sizes, grouped together on one wall—an animated collage, contrasting the solitude of Thy’s people with Regis’ unified mechanisms.
