Photography Exhibition “Fall & Release” by Thomas Dessein

Ke Quan

81 Xuan Dieu street, Tay Ho District

The expression “Fall & Release” refers to a training and studying method common in contemporary dance.

In his works, the artist tried to rediscover, through the figure of the fall, this space in between the causes and consequences of a movement, where space and time is undefined and the body forgets itself to give the viewer the most absurd beauty.

The project is inspired by the ancient Muong epic ‘De Dat De Nuoc’ (‘The Birth of Soil and Water’), from which emerges a belief that there is spirituality in all beings, that the creation of the world is constantly in a state of chaos where humans struggle to cohabit harmoniously with other creatures, and especially with themselves.
