From Goethe Institut:
The production of paper made from bamboo has a long tradition in some Asian countries, but the process is usually completed with the moulding of the paper. But this is just the beginning for Truc Chi – a new form of art: the artists of the group interact with the wet structure of the paper in the frame and use water pressure and other techniques to change the surface. In this way, unique images are created, which some artists further process through brush or collage techniques.
The person behind the new discovery of bamboo paper for Contemporary Art is artist Phan Hai Bang, who developed new techniques for the treatment of the material. In 2012, Phan Hai Bang, together with students of the Hue College of Arts formed the association Viet Nam Truc Chi Art (“Nghệ Thuật Trúc Chỉ Việt Nam”). The exhibition “Truc Chi – Listen To The River” presents bamboo paper artworks for the first time in the Goethe-Institut Hanoi from July 1-15, 2016.
As part of an artist talk on July 2, Phan Hai Bang and Dr. Nguyen Nghia Phuong of the Vietnam Fine Arts University will explain the new term “Trucchigraphy” (“Đồ Họa Trúc Chỉ”), show some examples and have a discussion with the audience.
Want to learn more and try out the techniques to process the bamboo paper yourself? Apply for ourworkshop on July 2 and a final workshop on July 14. The minimum age for participation is 14 years. The workshop is held in Vietnamese. Applications should be sent until June 28 to Mrs Tran Thanh Huong,
