The disoriented garden… A breath of dream

Trương Công Tùng

Date:

13 Jun - 18 Aug 2024

Deeply immersed in materiality and spirituality, Trương Công Tùng's solo exhibition, titled “The disoriented garden… A breath of dream,” at the Jim Thompson Art Center, Bangkok, offers a poetic yet haunting perspective on various complicated issues in the Central Highlands, Vietnam. From an installation made of natural and artificial elements that he foraged to a video artwork that interlaces the visuals and sounds from his hometown in Gia Lai Province, Trương employed a diverse spectrum of media to gesture toward unspoken stories of ecological disruption and social politics. Stepping into Trương’s exhibition is also akin to taking a leisure stroll through a mythical secret garden, one that is immersed in a trancelike ambience in which the audience can temporarily unfocus their consciousness and allow their senses to take over. Watch the ghost lights play chase across the screen, listen to the faint reverberations of water, breathe in the smell of soil and seeds: the garden awaits those who wish to see differently.

“The disoriented garden… A breath of dream” will open on June 13th, 2024 and run until August 18th, 2024 in Gallery 1-2 of Jim Thompson Art Center. The exhibition is a joint endeavor supported by both the James H.W. Thompson Foundation and the Han Nefkens Foundation’s Southeast Asian Video Art Production Grant, to which Trương is the 2023 recipient. The artist Trương Công Tùng and curator Dương Mạnh Hùng would like to extend their most sincere gratitude to the board members of the J.H.W. Thompson Foundation, Dr. Gridthya Gaweewong the director and staffs from the Jim Thompson Art Center, Supernormal Studio.
