Chisenhale Gallery presents Becoming Alluvium, the first solo exhibition in the UK by Saigon-based artist Thao Nguyen Phan. Working with painting, installation and moving image, Phan’s work explores history and tradition through non-fiction and fictional narratives.
The exhibition continues ongoing research on the Mekong River, which runs through Tibet, China, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Composed of two elements – a single channel film work and a series of lacquer and silk paintings – the works simultaneously explore real and imaginary worlds.
Becoming Alluvium is 16 minutes and 40 seconds long. It will be screened every 20 minutes beginning on the hour. Daily screenings start at 12pm and the last screening is at 5.40pm.
