You are invited to the exhibition “No regret for the past, no project on future, there is only today“, the project “My city” by the artist Bang Duong. This exhibition also includes a sound work and an interactive photography.

The exhibition is curated by Truong Minh Quy and Phan Minh Tuan (Liar Ben).

The photographs of Bang Duong can be considered as the collections of the values of life, of HCMC culture, where he was born and are now living in. Probably because of his nostalgia and his Chinese origin, his everyday life photographs usually follow the traditional values also the active movement of the city.

In 2013, he participated in the photography workshop by Zhuang Wubin. This seven-day workshop is for photographers and artists who want to develop personal photo projects. Working with curator/photographer Zhuang Wubin, the aim is to take each participant through the process of developing his/her project, starting from the conceptualization to the realization/presentation of the work. This workshop is a starting point for Bang Duong to approach and make his contemporary photograph projects recently.

His “My city” project is a rove in searching for the multi view on the urban architecture. In the time of the fast urbanization, by capturing the transition between the old local architecture and the updated one, the artist puts the questions about the conflicts of the time values and the globalization.

His photography works in this project are taken with multi-exposure. This way helps us to capture more than 2 dimensions at one moment of taking photo. During an interval of 30 seconds between the two shutters, the artist seeks the two landscapes within a possible area. Watching this kind of photograph, the audience can have multidimensional view of an illusionary landscape that is overlapped, mixed and moved… The city landscape (or context) now is an interfusion of the modern meanings.

Free entry.
