Danh Vo: Wad Al-Hayara ( Museo Jumex)

Patrick Charpenel, Magali Arriola, Mark Godfrey, o.a.

Extensive catalogue published for his recent exhibition at Museo Jumex in Mexico City. 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.
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.
