Vietnamese artist Hoang Long Hai will open his first solo exhibition titled Glassy Figures on December 11, on view in the Exhibition Space & Gallery (3F, Exhibition Space, 16 Ngo Quyen, Hoan Kiem, Ha Noi) until December 17.

Long Hai explores indisposed memories and melancholy theme via mixed medium, such as interior paints Dulux, leaves and papers. He states, “When the audience chooses to move away from the facade of chaos, imperfection and darkness, they will find out a beautiful truth: delicate yet incredibly piercing souls. The stories, the life experiences, the past is always shimmering and pure inside our hearts, just like glassy figurines; but sometimes all we need to do is gently cherish those beautiful things.”

The exhibit features 10 paintings and 1 audiovisual artwork. All the artworks in the exhibit were produced from March to November this year.

“Glass is beautiful, but it can be so dangerous. But no matter what, glass is always reflective. ‘Glassy Figures’ at its core is simply an honest conversation with the ‘self.’” Long Hai added.

Opening hour is 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. until December 17.
