‘You can talk to me,’ an exhibition displaying various works of art by contemporary artists, representing different dimensions of sexual harassment and abuse, is slated to conclude in Ho Chi Minh City tonight after an eight-day run.

The exhibition is an integral part of the project ‘Vi ban duoc tin’ (Because you are trusted) organized by the Institute for Studies of Society, Economy and Environment (iSEE) with an aim to raise the public awareness about gender violence.

The immersive space of the event invited visitors to step into a journey of ten contemporary works of art created by seven groups of Vietnamese artists.

Notably, at the interactive performance ‘You can tell me your secret’ by Le Phuong Nhi, visitors can share things that can hardly be disclosed to anyone with the artist.

The installation ‘Paper planes’ gathers hundreds of letters sent to Share Our Stories, a Vietnamese community working on sexual harassment.

The letters containing confessions of victims of the issue are folded into paper planes.

Each visitor can take a paper plane with them as a way to show their sympathy with the victims.

The event commenced at 6B Nguyen Canh Chan Street in District 1 on December 6, and is open to visitors every day from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm until tonight.

After its conclusion in Ho Chi Minh City, ‘You can talk to me’ will be organized in Hanoi in January 2020.
