Bang Nhat Linh’s ‘The Vacant Chair’ travels to Mori Art Museum, Tokyo

Post Vidai is happy to announce that one of our collected piece ‘The Vacant Chair‘ by artist Bang Nhat Linh will travel to Tokyo this summer to ‘SUNSHOWER: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia 1980s to Now’, a major exhibition surveying in large scale contemporary art in Southeast Asia from 1980s up to now.

Apart from Bang Nhat Linh‘s this piece, many artists from Post Vidai collection also participate in this show, namely Dinh Q. Le, Tiffany Chung, Hoang Duong Cam and Tuan Andrew Nguyen.

The idea conceptualizing this exhibition:

Sunshower – rain falling from clear skies – is a frequently-seen meteorological phenomenon in Southeast Asia. The post-WWII  decolonization led the countries to democratization and internationalization despite periods of turmoil, but with the rapid economic  and urban development that they have undergone in more recent years came truly drastic changes. It thus serves as a poetic metaphor  for the region that has passed through various vicissitudes as well. This exhibition seeks to explore the development of contemporary art in Southeast Asia since the 1980s  against the backdrop of the currents and fluctuations of the times from 9 different perspectives, and aims to capture its dynamism and diversity.
