This expansive project continues Vo’s internationally-acclaimed conceptual practice, in which he weaves together archival fragments and personal references, often evoking experiences of migration and integration. Sculpture, calligraphy, drawing, photography and painting fuse elements of ancient and contemporary cultures.
The first solo show to span the Main Gallery and the Fire Station building, the project also involves siting an outdoor sculpture by Isamu Noguchi on neighbouring Pelican housing estate and a collaboration with Art Block, the SLG’s free space for local children.
The concept of plurality is central to the exhibition, with Vo working across the multiple spaces in a variety of methods. He presents works made in collaboration with numerous different people, including his father, lover, nephew, professor, friends, students, children and others he has encountered in the course of their creation.
Exhibition supported by Chantal Crousel, Marian Goodman Gallery, kurimanzutto, White Cube, the Henry Moore Foundation, the Danish Arts Foundation and the Embassy of Denmark in the UK.
