EXHIBITION

Mai-Loan Tu's Art Exhibition

L'usine

19 Le Thanh Ton St., District 1

You are invited to the first outdoor exhibition of the oeuvre of Vietnamese-French illustrator Mai-Loan Tu.

By ink and paper cut-outs, Mai-Loan Tu draws the viewer in with a deceptively realistic line, only to shock us a moment later with the surreal juxtaposition of disparate elements. Combined with familiar objects in uncanny ways, her images seem to draw from the collective unconsciousness that lives somewhere deep within all of us.

This multimedia, collaged body of work will showcase the artist’s ongoing inquiry into the epic story and continuous struggle of human (im)migration, whilst highlighting the contested nature of the memorisation, documentation and circulation of history.
