Venue from LOONG KOONG

Art exhibition LOONG KOONG hosted by two potters is now held at Vincom modern art center (B1-R3, Vincom Mega Mall Royal City, 72A Nguyen Trai, Thanh Xuan, Ha Noi) in Thanh Xuan district, Ha Noi

The exhibition opened on December 8. Trinh Vu Hieu and Bui Quoc Khanh are co-hosts of this exhibition. They met at pottery factory Krake Ceramic Studio and say “We started this exhibition because we would like to maintain the cultural values of traditional ethnicity.”

The basic theme of Trinh’s art is the Vietnamese historic story. He combines Hang Trong’s painting and Northern Vietnamese pottery technique. On the other hand, Bui got inspiration from the Vietnamese traditional toy Tò he and created his original character. At the venue, Trinh’s 32 artworks and Bui’s 25 items are exhibited.

Trinh comments “Our art reflects Vietnamese society that you can see the conflicting present, past, and future. At the same time, you will also recognize the opposite values of old and new there. These values create not a contradiction but humor. We would like to focus on traditional culture as Vietnamese artists from now on.”

Opening hour is 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. until February 15.
