French artist Nadège David, who now lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City, will display her drawings and sculptures that examine and question the connection between Human and Animal.
The exhibition, named Ho®s-Sol (Soil-Less®), will open on May 8 and will run until June 7.
Inspired by the precision of scientific drawing and Asian aesthetics, her watercolor and ink drawings unveil a sinister nature that appears alien and devious, the gallery said in a release. 

“Drawing emerges to me as an expression of exchange between images, thoughts, and the languages of real and imagined worlds,” said the artist, who received an MA in Political Philosophy at University La Sorbonne, Paris and an MA in Contemporary Political Philosophy, University of Paris VIII.

Ho®s-Sol at Galerie Quynh is David’s second solo exhibition in the Vietnamese southern metro. Her first, “Experience sweet and relaxing dreams”, was held at Mai Gallery in 2007. 
The opening ceremony will be held 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. May 8 at Galerie Quynh’s Downtown on Level 2, 151/3 Dong Khoi Street, District 1. The venue is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays to Sundays.
