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

Created by Wonderful District, Atelier Wonderful is a place dedicated to contemporary creation in Ho Chi Minh city. It opens its doors every saturday for students, creators and art lovers who want to meet, share ideas and get information. Atelier Wonderful is neither a gallery nor an art center, it gathers different aspects in the compact space of a small artist studio :

-a small lounge, offering a display of documentation that can be consulted on place (art books, magazines, DVDs, digital data bank about artists),

-a workshop, which will accomodate regular presentation of artists' works or cultural actors' talks.
