Danh Vo

New major monographic catalogue on the work of Danh Vo to accompany his recent solo exhibition at Museo Jumex in Mexico City. Includes texts by Patrick Charpenel, Magalí Arriola, Virgilio Piñera, Mark Godfrey, Patricia Falguières, Francesco Pellizzi & Tom McDonough. The works included in the exhibition refer to precise chapters in history like the Christian evangelization in South-East Asia, the spread of the Vietnam War and the artist’s family’s exile. But they also embody phenomena like cultural cross-contamination and the difficulties of reconciling two different contexts; the (more or less) failed attempts at resisting dominant ideologies, and the severe consequences of expansionism and industrialization. By tackling issues such as migration and displacements, the consequent multiplication of presents and the ensuing need for negotiation with the past come about, echoing the dismembering and disarticulation of bodies, and death as a means of expression that might end up signifying all of our actions.
