An installation art exhibition, which is backed by a Denmark-Vietnam culture development fund, is going on in Ho Chi Minh City until early next month.

The exhibition, “Chien Binh” (The Warriors), opened on April 17 and will run until May 3 at Saigon Domaine, located at 1057 Binh Quoi, Binh Thanh District.

The exhibit features sculptures and space-adaptable installations by local artist-poet Nguyen Thuy Hang.

Hang’s oeuvre includes 49 human-shaped objects which are made from nearly 700 kilograms of scrap iron, over 6,000 meters of fabric, and a huge amount of dye.

The objects, which vary in shapes and sizes, look just like an army platoon, Hang explained.

The exhibition, which is meant to highlight the striking differences among individuals in society, is the fruit of the artist’s four-year dedication.

The event is jointly sponsored by the Denmark-Vietnam Cultural Development and Exchange Fund under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark and the Post Vidai Contemporary Art Collection.

Established in 1994, “Post Vidai” is the only collection in the world that focuses on the development of Vietnamese contemporary art, collecting both the internationally recognized and as yet unknown artists, according to its website.
