Event Details

Dinh Q. Lê – ‘Photographing the Thread of Memory’ 

Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac, Paris, France 

8 February – 20 November, 2022 

Vietnamese artist Dinh Q. Lê has built up a rich and complex body of work since the 1990s, using a variety of techniques that places great emphasis on photography. And yet Dinh Q. Lê is not your typical photographer. For him, images represent a means of questioning, splicing and transforming.

Dinh Q. Lê designs installations using vernacular photographs and produces hybrid images blending diverse photographic styles. The technique he uses to intertwine images is inspired by watching his aunt weave mats. By applying it to weave images, Dinh Q. Lê combines two registers of representation to produce a new image, a blend of the two, the vision of which he irreversibly distorts.
