“New Form: Sculpture – Architecture – Space” is curated by Nguyen Anh Tuan with the participation of sculptors Phạm Thái Bình, Thái Nhật Minh, Khổng Đỗ Tuyền, Hoàng Mai Thiệp and designer Phạm Đam Ca. The exhibition is an activity in New Form project phase II, 2014 - 2015.
NEW FORM is an experimental sculpture project, which aims to overcome stereotypes of traditional sculpture and to open up new directions in thinking and creative possibilities of this art form. NEW FORM was founded by sculptors living and working in Hanoi with the desire to develop their career and to find new creative directions as well as experience a professional working environment.
In phase II, New Form project aims towards the connection of sculpture works with architectural living space in reality. The dialogue characteristics between the artworks are placed in the communicative ability with architecture, interior, and usage of that space. This dialogue has created special challenges when sculptures aren’t just dealing with its traditional inner relation such as shapes, materials, surfaces, colours, and aesthetics… but also with the correlation between sculpture and architectural space in the shape and function. This has to do with the environment, light, air, time, weather, the available context, and the changeable context as well as with the viewers’ behaviours and attitude to arts. As it isn’t just purely for the visual satisfying display, art has transformed into an intervention, intrusion and being parallel with movements, feelings, psychologies in everyday life activities.
