The Factory Contemporary Art Centre is pleased to invite you all to Nguyen Thuy Hang’s Art-Book Journey.
In this art-book tour, you will have the chance to explore the whole process of creating art in the process of making books, which is guided by the artist herself. From the sketch of ideas in her mind, to the drafts on paper, we also dive deeper into the stories of over one decade of writing, including five hand-written books, the printing process from color-proof test prints, zincographs, text proofs and the final published object. Thúy Hằng also takes us behind the scenes, via a short video documentary that illustrates the printing technique and process.
This is also an opportunity for visitors to see the drafts on traditional Trúc Chỉ paper, original paintings reproduced in Nguyen Thuy Hang’s books, and also to see her meticulous handmade edition of “Current Times, Good Sensations, and Reasonable Insanity”.
This journey is a kind of reconstruction of Thúy Hằng’s creating process, taking us backstage into a world where her art is of critical centrality to her written ideas and narratives.
