MEDITATION ON MIGRATION
Artist Danh Vo was born in Vietnam in 1975; his family fled the country in a handmade boat soon after and settled in Denmark. He lives and works in Berlin, producing installations that explore themes of memory and displacement, often reflecting on his own family’s flight from Vietnam to Europe.
He is the winner of the 2012 Hugo Boss award and is considered to be one of the most important artists working today.
Vo’s work is on view as part of the New Skin exhibition at the Aïshti Foundation, Jal el Dib.
