Talk – ‘Dinh Q. Lê In Conversation: Crossing the Farther Shore’

National Gallery, Singapore

27 January 2023

How does the physical act of weaving thousands of individual photographs tie together the shared experiences of Vietnamese families during the 1940s to 1980s?

Displayed for the first time in Asia in the exhibition “Living Pictures: Photography in Southeast Asia”, Vietnamese American artist Dinh Q. Lê’s installation ‘Crossing the Farther Shore’ (2014) is a rare record of the everyday lives of Southern Vietnamese people in the pre-Vietnam war period, reflected through abandoned images collected by the artist himself.

In this artist talk moderated by art historian Roger Nelson, Dinh Q. Lê will delve into the processes and motivations behind the work, its relation to his practice in photography, his perspectives on his work in the context of the exhibition, and his involvement in the independent art space Sàn Arts, which he co-founded in 2007.
