Trần Trọng Vũ

Tran Trong Vu was born in Hanoi. He graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Vietnam and obtained a scholarship to go to the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-arts de Paris. He was a guest artist at the Reims School of Art and Design, a guest professor at the Vietnam School of Fine Arts, a curator and an artistic advisor at Heritage Space in Hanoi. He currently lives in France.

His work beyond aesthetics permeates the obsession with a past that continues. A volume covered with plastic flowers invite visitors to read stories and to get lost in a colorful anxiety. A forest of plastic sheets, suspended from the ceiling to the ground, from which 3D images are emerged. This innovative use of materials creates a trompe-l'oeil effect that leads the visitors into a virtual labyrinth. Bewildered, they seek the way between characters and colors and are instantly transformed into actors on stage.

Playing with visual and psychological effects, his work intentionally gives the visitor experience of excitement and anxiety.
