'Dérive' – French for 'drift' – refers to the psychogeographic practice of traveling through various urban environments without any pre-determined itineraries.
This summer showcase, featuring works by Ha Manh Thang, Christine Nguyen, Trong Gia Nguyen and Tran Van Thao, can thus be said to resemble a 'dérive'. The juxtaposition of artworks depicting the real and imagined can be likened to chance encounters in the city.
Whether futuristic, historic, muted, feverish, lifelike, or stemming from the mind, the contrasting urban landscapes encourage an aimless wandering to discover what is often overlooked, neglected or lost.
