From the organizer: The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre is delighted to invite you to the opening of our up-coming exhibitions.
‘Spirit of Friendship’ Group Exhibition
This exhibition seeks to highlight the role and contribution of artist friendships in furthering the development of experimental languages in Vietnam, since 1975. As an educational display, it gives recognition to how ‘friendship’ continues to further the testing and encouraging of ideas among artists, beyond what was officially understood, taught, or predominantly exhibited in Vietnam at that time, believing their art worthy of more than catering to ideological/formal and touristic (commercial) demand.

‘Paradise Lost’ Exhibition by Hoàng Thanh Vĩnh Phong
‘Paradise Lost’, a solo exhibition by Hoàng Thanh Vĩnh Phong (b. 1971) invites us into a world where the familiar is made strange, the mundane mythologised and the symbolic re-arranged. Through the shifting of shape and twisting of material, images and objects from the everyday are taken out of context, heightened with a sense of ambiguity, asking us to look beyond what our first glance has to offer. In this world humans are paralysed by the mundanity of the everyday; their psychological and physical selves are simultaneously infected by the false hopes and aspirations they once desired, inevitably trapping them into the conditions to which they were born, perhaps too afraid to seek alternative. Here, the fictions become a critique of their lived environment, inviting us to examine the ways we see and understand our own version of reality.
