Cong Khanh Bui

Vietnamese artist Bùi Công Khánh’s solo project Porcelain Medals and Jackfruit Wood Grenades: The American War in Vietnam, curated by Iola Lenzi. Ended in 1975, the Vietnam war was reaching far beyond Asia, it defined Cold-War geopolitics of the second half of the 20th century. The conflict has frequently been examined from a non-Vietnamese perspective, and in Vietnam the war’s official evaluation is coloured by national ideology. Bùi Công Khánh was born and grew up in Danang, and his father was called-up by the South Vietnamese Army. Being from Central Vietnam, Khánh endorses neither the north’s nor south’s wartime position, and rather has a pan-Vietnam lens on continuing tensions between north and south.
Bùi Công Khánh examined this topic with monumental and exquisite works in porcelain and intricately carved jackfruit wood.
