Please join the artist for the last day of his solo exhibition ‘Dislocate’. Bui Cong Khanh shall share his two-year journey in realizing what is his most significant installation to date, showcasing the brilliance of Vietnamese culture in history and technique.
‘‘Dislocate’ is a kind of fortress. The central structure, likened to a bunker, is deliberately left incomplete; its roof and walls are not solid, possessing space between beams where wall panels are spread randomly throughout. Taking traditional imperial architectural techniques of Hue (the ancient capital of Vietnam) as its style, Bui chose the design of defense (the bunker) as its structure – it has only one entrance, its roof angled to hit the ground at the opposite end.
