Exhibition “em|body” by Doan Hoang Lam video by Pham Huy Thong

Opening: Fri 21 Aug 2015, 6 pm
Exhibition: 21 Aug – 20 Sep 2015
Manzi Art Space
14 Phan Huy Ich, Hanoi

From Manzi:

This fall Manzi is pleased to present “em|body”, an exhibition of both new and never before seen works by Doãn Hoàng Lâm. A Vietnam University of Fine Arts graduate, Lâm belongs to one of the previous generations of academically-trained artists whose talents were endured and pushed to the limit by the then highly-demanding art education system, and is now considered one of Hanoi’s most accomplished painters.

With a sense of naturalness of an artist and a disciplined mindset of an artisan, Lâm approaches each painting medium with sensitivity and clarity, utilizing its intrinsic vocabulary and qualities as the foundation for the formation of his ideas and experimentations, and an instrument to communicate his thoughts and mental states. In his works, lacquer would often be associated with depth, silk with delicacy, oil paint with fullness, watercolor with lightness and so on. For Lâm, to conduct a thorough practice with the most primary skills like sketching and life drawing, and to have a clear understanding of the most basic things like how to handle a particular paint and how to choose which brush to use, is as important as to continuously explore and refine his thought-, reflection- and creation-process. They both help to form the visual language and express the artistic vision that defines Lâm and separates him from his contemporaries.

Comprising four lacquer and five oil on canvas, “em|body” transforms the walls of Manzi into windows looking out into landscapes that are both cosmic and intimate, recalling images of the galaxy whilst revealing sensuous properties of the human body. The partially rendered human-like shapes look as if they are hovering in space, or emerging from behind the surface. Sometimes vulnerable and concealed, they have their backs to us; but mostly confrontational and powerful, they stare straight ahead, with their bare skin, disembodied figures and provoking positions all on display. Somewhere in this strange galaxy we see snippets resembling body parts: a twisted knee, a sagging breast, a deformed head, contorted limbs or spreading legs. Distorted and exaggerated, the body is repeatedly abstracted through the artist’s manipulations of forms and shifts in scales, acting as much a symbol of desire and a celebration of beauty as an object of fetish and an embodiment of violence. Here, the familiar has been made uncanny. Just a degree or two away from reality, we are left in an uncomfortable position, our senses toyed with, and our perceptions of affection/abjection, normality/abnormality, morality/immorality disrupted and questioned.

Free entrance.

Doan Hoang Lam’s painting collection – “Shades of Time” – was exhibited in the International Modern Art Gallery, Texas, USA in May 2015.

Triển lãm tranh 'Xác Phàm' của họa sĩ Doãn Hoàng Lâm trưng bày 14 bức tranh sơn với 2 chủ đề chính: Đám rước và Ký sinh.

14 bức tranh với chất liệu chính là sơn dầu, acrylic, giấy dó trên vải được họa sĩ vẽ liền mạch trong khoảng nửa năm trước triển lãm. Tất cả được khởi sự từ những suy nghiệm của anh về con người trong vòng xoay cuộc sống hiện tại.

Triển lãm được xem như là một phản ánh thú vị của riêng họa sĩ về đời sống chung quanh chúng ta. Những yếu ớt, tự ti, nhỏ mọn, những tầm thường và không thiếu sự ngây ngô của con người trước sức ép, dồn nén của một đời sống xã hội do chính chúng ta tạo ra được bộc lộ vừa rõ nét vừa tinh tế trên tranh. Một bảng mầu ấn tượng nhờ kỹ thuật hòa sắc điêu luyện, cảm xúc mạnh mẽ của một người vẽ hướng theo trường phái biểu hiện đã giúp tác giả khá toại nguyện với series tranh mới nhất này.

Và câu hỏi cho khán giả của triển lãm là: Vậy, trong những Xác Phàm này, bạn sẽ tìm thấy những cảm xúc gì?
Heritage Space honors to introduce the solo exhibition titled “Xác Phàm” (Mortal Bodies) by painter Doan Hoang Lam which features a series of his artworks created in recent years.

In this showcase, Doan Hoang Lam reveals 14 new paintings made by oils, acrylic color on "Do" paper featured his continous working in this year. They were inspired from own envisaging of humanlife in the current social circumtance.

“Still expressed with distortion of shapes, thick brush strokes and dark colors, “Xác Phàm” is, yet, totally different from other exhibitions by Doan Hoang Lam. The darkness does not only exist in each individual but also in a group of people – a community with heavy emotions, painful torment and scream in the silent darkness.” (Quach Dang Tuan Nghia).

So, among these Mortal Bodies, which feelings/emotions can you find?
