Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba "The Ground, the Root, and the Air"
This event has ended.
Born in 1968, in Tokyo, to a Japanese mother and Vietnamese father, Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba spent his early years in Japan. After moving to the U.S., he finished the MFA program at the Maryland Institute, College of Art, Mount Royal School of Art. Currently he resides and works in Ho Chi Minh City. His subject matter is stories of minorities, prisoners of circumstances, and refugees excavated from history.
In this exhibition, for the first chapter of the project Breathing is Free, "earth drawings" created from his running paths recorded via GPS will be shown along with sketches of planned runs and video of his running. Flowers are the theme of the project. "Flowers can speak of many emotions and ideas such as death, love, happiness, joy, romance, tragedy, suspense, friendship, mystery... and we seem to offer flowers to share our concerns."
The exhibition consists of the two most recent projects both shown for the first time in Japan and takes part in two locations of Mizuma Art Gallery, 2nd and 5th floor.
