PVD’s recent acquisitions focus on artists’ relationship with Vietnam

Post Vidai is glad to welcome new artworks by Cian Duggan, Ed Smyth and soon by Wu Chi-Tsung to the collection. While Irish Cian and Ed have been based in Vietnam in the last years to be part of the blossoming Saigon art scene, well-acclaimed Taiwanese artist Wu Chi-Tsung stepped on board as part of Mot+++, to support local community. He is currently making different series of works on paper and video in Vietnam, during and after his residency at Mot+++. On collecting pieces by these artists, Post Vidai once again unsettles the definition of ‘Vietnamese-ness’ by considering this characteristic in the history of the country (think of Viet Kieu, the Vietnamese-origin who themselves or their families left Vietnam after the war) and in the context of the nation’s social changes (think of international artists based in Vietnam for personal or professional reasons).
