Hanoi-Exhibition: “Green river, blue mountain”

L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street
L’Espace is pleased to present the exhibition – installation “Nước xanh non biec” (Green river, blue mountain) of visual artist Le Giang, the winner of the resident artist program “Tuong ho” Villa Saigon 2019
Following her works during a three-month stay at the Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris), based on the archives of an international colonial exhibition chain that took place from 1906 to 1931 in France, Le Giang extracted images of Vietnam colonial period created in French popular culture. In the process of examining these historical documents, she turned her query gaze into the shared past between the two countries. The “Green river, blue mountain” exhibition is an attempt by Le Giang to identify painful obstacles in dealing with a region of conflicting memories, as well as the need to face the myths about Indochina in the current Vietnam context.
