Danh Vo

Vientamese , 1975 -

Standing in front of the works of Danh Vo, one meets a personal archive of lived life in direct dialogue with the social issues of our time. In his conceptual works the Vietnamese-born artist circles around issues focusing on how identity is formed in cultural and political contexts - subjects often explored through his own and his family’s experience and history. ‘Cultural identity’ is granted new, critical significance in Vo’s works, where life lived is constantly confronted by cultural dogma, expectations, rituals and definitions. The artist’s works become a kind of litmus paper where we can trace the innermost mechanisms of our culture. Danh Vo’s photographic works play a key role as expanding archives of what one might call alternative identities. In Vo’s oeuvre memory becomes the place where culture and imagery meet and are articulated.
