Dinh Q. Lê 1968年生於越南與柬埔寨邊境城市Ha Tien,當時邊境戰事頻繁,11歲的 Lê 隨家人移居美國洛杉磯。其作品關注回憶的真實性及社會上對苦難歷史的記錄。他以不同手法重塑這些片段,讓我們在不斷遺忘中重新發現。2010年12月,澳 洲聖誕島(Christmas Island)發生難民船沉沒慘劇,對曾經是難民的Lê來說異常震撼。他把多年來搜集的舊照創作成是次展覽計劃“Erasure”,由澳洲悉尼 Sherman當代藝術基金會(SCAF)主辦,與越南胡志明市獨立藝術空間Sàn Art擔任執行策展人Zoe Butt共同策展,並得到Nicholas and Angela Curtis的榮譽贊助得以完成。Lê 特別選擇香港作為展覽巡迴第二站。這是Lê第三度與香港10 Chancery Lane Gallery合作舉行個展。

“Erasure” 是一段失落與尋找的旅程。它是藝術家Dinh Q. Lê尋找自身回憶的一部份,亦引起大眾關注難民議題。參觀者可翻開「大海」中近十萬張的照片,並將其帶給你的感觸、聯想、啟發寫於展場內提供的便條上。展 場裡的存檔員會日覆日的把這些收集起來的照片掃描,存檔,並上載至www.erasurearchive.net以延續是次計劃;在這些失落了的靈魂 (oan hon)中,或許有人可以找回自己的親人。

Dinh Q. Lê是近年備受注目的越南當代藝術家。先後獲邀參與多個重要國際展覧,包括:2010年於紐約當代藝術館個展“農民與直昇機”;2008年新加坡雙年 展;2007年美國華盛頓州貝爾維尤美術館,韓國首爾Arko藝術中心,美國德州侯斯頓美術館;2006年紐約MoMA PS1群展,澳洲亞太當代藝術三年展;2005年紐約亞洲協會;2005年意大利威利斯雙年展等,以及將於本年六月在德國卡塞爾開幕的 dOCUMENTA(13)卡塞爾文獻展。

Born in Vietnam in 1968, Lê moved to Los Angeles with his family in 1979 after fighting erupted between the Vietnamese and the Khmer Rouge near Ha Tien at the Cambodian border. As a refugee himself, Lê was motivated to produce Erasure by the tragic sinking of an asylum seeker’s boat off Christmas Island, Australia in December 2010. Erasure was commissioned and realized by the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) in Sydney in July 2011, co-curated by Zoe Butt director of San Art, Vietnam and proudly supported by Nicholas and Angela Curtis, Sydney, Australia. Lê has chosen to exhibit Erasure now in Hong Kong due to its historical relation as a Vietnamese asylum seeking country. Lê’s practice challenges how our memories are recalled and how society archives the evidence of human suffering, elucidating commitment to the artistic process as a means of excavating history and the uncovering and revealing of alternate ideas of loss and redemption. This is Lê’s third solo exhibition at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, Hong Kong.
