The Last Ride by Nguyễn Phương Linh
GIA LAI, ĐẮK LẮK, BÌNH DƯƠNG & BÌNH PHƯỚC, VIỆT NAM | December 2015 – July 2016
The Last Ride concludes Nguyễn Phương Linh’s yearlong research on Vietnamese history during the French colonial period and its consequences on the present-day Central Highlands. Using the elephant – a significant symbol of power and holy spirits in the ethnic culture of the region – as a point of departure, the artist explores the process during which the animal, as well as the people and their culture and land, have been tamed, controlled and exploited throughout time.
Exhibition: 7 – 21 January 2017 | 9AM – 7PM Monday – Sunday
Venue: Goethe Institut
Address: 56/58 Nguyễn Thái Học, Ba Đình dist., Hà Nội
