The exhibition titled “Remnant” by artist Le The Lam featuring the the remnants of war and the consequence of historical upheaval on the society will be open at Factory Contemporary Arts Center in Ho Chi Minh City on December 9.
The exhibition will bring viewers into Le The Lam’s own world, where lies the sorrow and anxiety of living in postwar Vietnam. He feels lost within the ramifications of a booming era of technology and economy, with its environmental pollution and human mental depression.
In this exhibition, Lam’s paintings and sculptures depict different states of a ‘silent death’, the psychological impact of death, the bewilderment and anxiety embedded in the journey to the quiet land of death
Le The Lam was born in 1989 in Ha Tinh Province.
He graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Ho Chi Minh City University of Fine Arts in 2015. His first exhibition was Human and Animal in 2016; and joined in a group exhibition at the Fine Arts Association, Ho Chi Minh City.
Lam’s artworks express his concerns about society today, focusing on the relationship between humanity and its habitat, how it has changed and suffered from social malady, such as consumerism, colonial occupation and modern psychological trauma.
The event will run until February 11, 2018.
