A total of 21 paintings by Vietnamese French artist Florian Nguyen about the process of saving and recovering memories will be displayed in Ho Chi Minh City from June 3-17.
“Memory and Oblivion” exhibition will run at the French Cultural Exchange Center, Idecaf, at 28 Le Thanh Ton Street. Entrance is free.
The 28-year-old artist’s collection depicts childhood memories of immigrants.
Nguyen said his grandparents left Vietnam when they were young and they told him about their childhood memories, which prompted him to transfer their memories into artwork.
He painted with Chinese ink on canson paper.
Nguyen, a self-taught visual artist, has held various exhibitions in France and abroad.
