Exhibition 'Then I Can Turn the World Upside Down'

Salon Saigon

6D Ngo Thoi Nhiem, Ward 7, District 3

‘Then I Can Turn the World Upside Down’ is an exhibition of works on paper by five Vietnam-based contemporary artists. Each work, by Le Hoang Bich Phuong, Mai Hoang, Nguyen Manh Hung, Florian Nguyen and Hoang Nam Viet, explores in its own subjective way the myriad of possibilities inherent in the medium of drawing to create imaginary realities which evoke the subconscious.
With their ink and paper, the artists have created visions of hidden beauty and reinterpretations of the world, revealing quasi-hallucinatory perspectives on otherwise all too familiar landscapes.

Exhibition “The Picture Will Still Exist”

2nd Floor, 103 Dong Khoi Str, District 1

Le, Hoang Duong Cam, Howard Henry Chen, Le Quy Tong, Ngoc Nau, Phuong Linh, The Propeller Group and Vo An Khanh. A number of artworks, such as Dinh Q. Le’s WTC in four moments (2014), The Propeller Group’s AK-47 vs. M16 (2015) and Phuong Linh’s Sanctified Clouds (2012-2015), will be on display to the Vietnamese public for the first time.
