Dahn Vo, Go Mo Ni Ma Da
Exhibition in Musée d´Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris, France.
Appearing highly personal at first glance, the work of Danh Vo is in fact powerfully political. Neither direct nor confrontational, his practice explores the power games underlying liberal societies, the rules governing those societies, and the fragility of the nation-state concept. Built around the circulation of values, be they material, economic, symbolic or spiritual, the artist’s oeuvre also reveals the complexity of the interchange between peoples in the context of post-colonial society. His installation Go Mo Ni Ma Da revolves around three groups of works, plus a handwritten work produced in situ by the artist's father.
