This facility, The Factory conducts a program called Re-Aligning the Cosmos. Le’s exhibition is a part of that program. The exhibition is under the theme of natural stones sold as power stones. It started on June 30. They display more than 20 items. It includes paintings colored with stone powder, sculptures, and movies. Le says “People usually imagine something virtual and poetic from its color and shape. Yet, what I tried to express here is a warning of the possibility of natural destruction caused by mining.”

Le studied art and education at Hanoi University of Fine Arts. After that, she got a Master’s degree at the University of the Arts London. She was curious about in the process that provides sacred values to the natural stones. This drove her to conduct one year of research. In detail, it was about a custom that worships rock. Besides, she collected scientific reports and geological survey results. Also, she indicates problems related to the collection of natural stones. Customers can see the online trading boom of Fengshui items as well. She comments “I researched a process of how they label stones as sacred. Visitors also can see a mechanism of creating values for products.”

Le adds “I would like to send a message about natural protection through my art pieces.” She also says “It questions not only for producers and communities offer a spiritual experience. This message is also for those who believe in stones blindly.”

The opening hour is from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The opening days are until September 5.
