The Propeller Group and Christopher Myers, based between New York City, Los Angeles and Saigon, have encapsulated the elusive butterfly effect — the theory of "nonlocality” whereby two distinct phenomena affect one another across a vast expanse of space and time. The film, The Living Need Light, And The Dead Need Music, a phrase taken from a Vietnamese proverb, documents the funeral tradition of Saigon from the vantage of New Orleans: two cities, two cultures, mirroring each other from worlds apart.

Dinh Q. Lê, Erasure (2012)
ARTIST'S NEWS DISRUPTED CHOREOGRAPHIES
19 Feb 2014
Disrupted Choreographies weaves eight contemporary voices from Vietnam who propose alternate narratives between colonial histories, 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).

The artists in this exhibition juxtapose historical event and social phenomena; relevant to the diasporic contexts they conceptually and physically traverse. 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 in cyclical movement, ie. in repeat.

Participating artists: Lena Bui; Tiffany Chung; Dinh Q Lê; Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba; Nguyen Huy An; Nguyen Thai Tuan; Nguyen Trinh Thi and ‘The Propeller Group’
