Dans le clair obscur du langage

€15,00 EUR

by Thu Van Tran



Thu Van Tran's work incorporates a wide range of practices: sculpture, writing, cinema and installations. From her migrant perspective, she explores the pitfalls of globalization, embracing language and matter in a shared creative process. The Centre d'art contemporain d'Ivry - le Crédac is devoting a solo exhibition to Thu Van Tran for the first time, after having collaborated with her twice on group shows: "Expériences Insulaires" in 2006, and "L'Homme de Vitruve" in 2012. As a sculptor, Thu Van Tran has created monumental works (a boat perched on top of a postmodern building designed by Ricardo Bofill in Noisy-le-Grand, an arch-boutant at the Maison Rouge in Paris) using modest materials: wood, paper, wax, etc. But the raw material for her works is always the artist himself. But the raw material of his works is one of the most evanescent: fiction. The narratives Thu Van Tran gives tangible form to are postcolonial in inspiration, and her works are linked to the intertwined history of Vietnam and France. Beaux Arts Éditions invites you to enter Thu Van Tran's singular universe, inspired by literature and history, architecture and nature.
