Di* composition

24 June 2006

Wonderful District host a show by a group of art students from the British International School. The artists have been working around themes of composition and destruction, growth and redevelopment. They have chosen to base their work around the Opera House, a renowned French Colonial building which signifies a multiplicity of meanings. From an icon of harsh times, a bastion of European culture and a tourist meeting point, the Opera House is centrally placed in a down town, District 1 location. Wonderful district lends itself to collaboration and discourse and the students have worked in a group to formalise and produce their ideas. Their outcome is a comment on their environment, our community… a constantly changing, evolving and developing city that heralds an exciting future whilst maintaining its strong and political history.

Artists: Hanh Nguyen, Minh Ho, Eun Ji Chaung, Linh Pham, Dini Muana, Triana Hernandez

Artist advisors: Vikki Hill, Betrand Peret, Sandrine Llouquet

27 Duong 5

recent work by vikki hill

sound by simon wring

The work shown in this exhibition is a celebration of people and places; countries and cultures. The ink drawings on the ground floor refer to cities that are, or have been, important to me in various ways. They are stories of journeys taken.

Singapore, 2006

The Tokyo painting was originally part of a tryp tich based on women from different parts of Asia – Japan, Indonesia and Afghanistan. The painting is an extension of my journal that I kept whilst away. Pattern and repetition are predominant features in my work. This is reflected in the Bangkok photographs that also show the surface of the streets.

The circular paintings from Singapore were documents of my trip to the island and became a journal in themselves. The 2 drawings (rubbings) document my house and my neighbourhood. The making was assisted by my young neighbours.

Upstairs houses a series of 9 paintings and their felt ‘reflections’. The idea was conceptualised last year on a visit to Hoi An, where the surfaces and textures of the walls and buildings fascinated me. I made the pieces during the New Year celebrations and each refer to an aspect of Vietnamese culture - myth, legend, song. The moon reoccurs in each piece. Felt-making is labour-intensive, and the focus of these is the process, colour, pattern and repetition.
