Multimedia Artist Bui Cong Khanh Explores the American War in Vietnam
Why We Recommend it
This immersive exhibition considers the paradoxes and strains in today’s Vietnam which were resulted directly and indirectly from the civil war and its aftermath.
Bui Cong Khanh (b. 1972, Danang) is one of the first Vietnamese artists to gain an international reputation during the 1990s. He embraces painting and sculpture to express his fascination with the complex history of his native country.
Entitled Porcelain Medals and Jackfruit Grenades, this solo show is presented as an integrative domestic room installation that includes monumental and exquisite works in porcelain and intricately carved jackfruit, a precious timber indigenous to Vietnam.
