Danh Võ: 2004-2012
Edited and with introduction by Yilmaz Dziewior. Text by Julie Ault, Doryun Chong, Oscar Faria.

In the installations of Danh Vo, comprising arrangements of objects, photographs, documents, craft objects, and souvenirs, the private meets the public, his own biography meets political history, and the original meets the copy. This two-volume publication encompasses Danh Vo’s compelling work in all its entirety for the first time.

The first volume provides a carefully compiled résumé based on the chronology of his projects and exhibitions will be complemented by numerous installations views as well as texts by Julie Ault, Yilmaz Dziewior, Doryun Chong, and Oscar Faria, who will be engaging with Vo’s work by considering issues of biography and history, readymades and appropriation, poetry and politics, while placing it within an art historical context.

The second volume pays homage to Danh Vo’s father Phung Vo and his contribution to his son’s projects as an independent work complex. Numerous reproductions duplicated by hand by Phung Vo of a letter originating from 19th Century France, which Théophane Vénard, who was later canonized by the Catholic Church as a martyr, wrote shortly before his decapitation to his father, are shown.
