Trần Trọng Vũ
Vu is a Vietnamese visual artist born in Hanoi and now lives and works in Paris. His works, beyond their aesthetics, reflects the obsession of the past and the political and human derision.
He paints on large transparent plastic sheets and installs them as 3D installations. The modes of presentation themselves maintain an ambiguous relationship with the viewers, who should seek a path through the transparency in between the images, figures and colours. Vu’s works have a visual and psychological effects caused by the virtual maze he creates with his choice of material.
In 2011, he was awarded the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Grant in New York.
