From the organizer:
‘Dislocate’ is a solo exhibition by acclaimed Vietnamese artist, Bùi Công Khánh, it is his largest and most ambitious art installation to date.
Walk into the world of ‘Dislocate’ and the wood of the jackfruit tree springs to life referencing a myriad of social and cultural histories concerning Vietnam in style and subject. A stunningly carved fortress sits center-stage; its beams, decorative panels and windows recalling the magnificent architectural traditions of Hue (the ancient capital of Vietnam). Surrounding this fortress stand four spiritual ‘guards’ – miniature pagoda ensconced within ‘penjing’ representing the cycle of the seasons. Working with a team of senior expert wood carvers and carpenters from Hoi An over a two year period, ‘Dislocate’ embraces a complex interwoven set of narratives that pivots around this ancient city on the central coast of Vietnam – a city at the heart of Bui Cong Khanh’s practice and family history.
