Vietnam has long been a theatrical stage for the highly choreographed movements of world politics. Residual: Disrupted Choreographies presents the perspectives of eight contemporary artists whose artworks weave alternate awareness of the complex platform of colonization with a reassessment of ideas of collective behavior, systems of class, and the crumbling of ideological thought. This exhibition challenges the relationship between Vietnam and the global stage, illustrating an artistic community critical of the historical consciousness that often stands in for its name (ie. the guilt of war; the tourist getaway; the nostalgic colonial). Today, Vietnam is a deeply complicated and contradictory social landscape. The residue of colonialism is visually evident as the urban fabric weaves a dance between preservation, subsistence and destruction, as the French neo-classical landmarks are torn down to make way for luxury brand supermalls or are restored as facades only, replete with kitsch stained-glass windows, such as Saigon s downtown Eden Mall. Vietnam is a place where highways are created in weeks; where internet connections are lightning fast and multiple; where an increasing entrepreneurial ethic sits side by side a growth in informal economies the Singaporean trained soya expert with his chic noodle house beside the street vendor selling new Haiphong-influenced bánh mì. This is a community at once indifferent and embracing of otherness, taking the opportunity of tomorrow as a residual time, as potential for renewal 1. The artists in this exhibition are a motley crew of visual archivists and excavators. Their research and juxtaposition of historical events and social phenomena, relevant to the contexts they conceptually and physically live and traverse, triggers a nomadic approach to visualizing fact and fiction. Their dance in the residual space of failing ideologies, post-industrialized communities, heterotopias and the ramification of representation are careful artistic choreographies that they understand are ever in repeat. The relation engaged by these artists disrupts and alters assumptions of History, their narratives highlighting the affect of movement as it is historically, conceptually and physically enacted and conceived. These movements are habitual in the work of Lena Bùi and Nguyễn Huy An (eg. the study of human behavior or the collective as a strategy of survival); displaced in the work of Đinh Q Lê and Jun Nguyễn-Hatsushiba (eg. the asylum seeker, the catalogued document, the spiritually disillusioned); absent in the work of Nguyễn Thái Tuấn and Nguyễn Trinh Thi (eg. the symbolic marking of what once stood, or what once took place); and causal in the work of The Propeller Group and Tiffany Chung (eg. The repercussion, the spin-off, the consequence). Such movements are deliberate artistic methodologies that consciously question the impact and assumed structures of social control, such as the archive, entertainment, ethnography, psychology, monumentality and behavioral science, to name but a few. They craft highly stylized aesthetics whose images embrace formats globally familiar and marketable the moving, painted, sculpted and the performed. What anchors and empowers their work is the study of the residual, that liminal near intangible fragment of memory that has become almost rootless for its lack of visual signposting in topical life. In the absence of interpretative historical archives and discursive spaces of debate where they live and work 2, these artists are akin to social scientists, conjuring new formulae for their movements, their understanding of human cause and effect. They pioneer alternate constructs of what constitutes artistic value as not only aesthetic, but as an expanded investigation of social relation. This exhibition is co-organized by Carre d Art and San Art, celebrating 40 years of diplomatic relation between France and Vietnam and marks The Year of Vietnam in France, supported by Institut Francais and the Vietnamese Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism.. About Sàn Art Sàn Art is an artist initiated, non-profit contemporary art organization committed to the exchange and excavation of cultural knowledge within an interdisciplinary community. San Art is the most active independent arts organization in Vietnam dedicated to promoting, facilitating and showcasing contemporary art through production, exhibition, discourse and education. 1 In the theory of renewal processes, a part of the mathematical theory of probability, the residual time or the forward recurrence time is the time between any given time and the next epoch of the renewal process under consideration.
