The talk revolves around the historical and spiritual symbols in Ha Manh Thang’s ‘Circle of Time’ painting series.
Ha Manh Thang’s paintings are culturally and historically enriched, but never show nostalgia. Emotional and sculpture-like, his paintings can be described as an excavation of historical and traditional stories that have long been buried; therefore they may be indicative of destruction and reconstruction.
In the ‘Circle of Time’ series, Thang focuses on nature, especially spring, with metaphorical meaning of the ups and downs in life. With poetic and tranquil depiction of time, memory and places, Thang’s paintings reveal the mighty power of nature.
The talk will be moderated by our special guest Natalia Kraevskaia (or Natasha) – researcher, independent curator, and co-founder of the prestigious Salon Natasha.
Please register at the reception or on the event page. Due to seat limitation, the talk can only receive 80 participants.
