From Heritage Space:
Heritage Space proudly introduces the ‘VÙNG KHÔNG TƯỞNG – UTOPIA LAND’ – the final exhibition of Contemporary Art exchange project ‘Month of Arts Practice – MAP 2017’.
UTOPIA-LAND, which is theme of ‘Month of Art Practice project – MAP 2017’, plays a role in opening a platform for artists to set up surrealist, illusive and dreamy worlds by the abilities, tools and means of art. UTOPIA-LAND exhibition presents artworks of 15 artists from Germany, France, Serbia, South Korea, India, America and Viet Nam. All works are results of 5 exchange and working weeks of MAP. Disciplines are varied from painting, sculpture, photography, videography, multimedia, conceptual and public art, installation and site-specific art.
Together, they have been through all barriers, challenges, conflicts and harmonization arisen due to differences in culture, language, behaviors and cognition. Together, they expressed their own outlook without limit or inferiority because of presentation and transmitting styles despite cognitive and tools faults. Together, they have set up divergent yet open UTOPIA-LANDS which created opportunities for connections and dialogues in new channels and interfaces. When the usual communications become limited and distress. When the population of mankind is expanding non-linearly day by day and individuals are isolated, slender and lost.
