TLTT #7 Art talk with Nguyễn Oanh Phi Phi

Future of Tradition* would like to invite you to attend a talk with Artist Nguyen Oanh Phi Phi: “A Contemporary Approach to Vietnamese Lacquer Painting”. This talk is the 7th event in the series of event of the project, to follow the schedule of events, please go to: https://www.facebook.com/events/412403619553316/ Lacquer is a traditional medium in Vietnamese art, used primarily on paintings. With Nguyen Oanh Phi Phi, Vietnamese lacquer has been her core element in her contemporary practice. Without using Son ta (traditional Vietnamese lacquer) on paintings in a traditional way, Oanh Phi Phi made a “swim upstream with traditional techniques” and “bring new life to lacquer by experimenting” such as using lacquer on glass, using lacquer as a material in architecture … With Nguyen Oanh Phi Phi, Son ta is no longer “a fastidious and conservative material”, it is also a close bond between the Artist and Vietnamese culture. “Today, there is a lot of material for an artist to choose, but to work with lacquer – a material that takes a lot of time and energy – requires a deep desire to be released with affections of the surrounding environment.” (Shared by Nguyen Oanh Phi Phi). Why did Artist Nguyen Oanh Phi Phi choose to adventure with materials that need so much “time and energy”? What is the relationship between lacquer and Vietnamese culture in her assessment? We would like to invite you to come and discuss...

Open letter of Hanoi New Music Festival 2018

HANOI NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL 2018 – MAKE A SILENCE Dear friends, By this point, there is clearly no easy answer exists as to what defines ‘South East Asia’ – culturally, as much as anything else. Or perhaps such impossibility of commonality is the key to understanding ‘South East Asia’. Or perhaps, different as we seem—shaped by the strange forces of history, we are still part of one. As a region, how do we best celebrate and make the most out of this tension—these two seemingly opposing truths? “​There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.​”​ ​(John Cage)​ Perhaps the most primitive and natural thing that a human being can do with their...
