Screening of two films by Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba, House of Culture of Japan
The 27 September 2019 at 18h at the House of Culture of Japan in Paris.
The House of Culture of Japan, the Cernuschi Museum, the Society of Friends of the Cernuschi Museum and ASIA NOW have teamed up to offer you a projection-conference on Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba. Born in 1968, Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba is a Vietnamese-Japanese artist of international renown. He has benefited from solo and group exhibitions in numerous museums around the world, such as the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo and the Pompidou Center in Paris, as well as the Venice Biennale in 2003 and 2005. His work, halfway between video and performance, questions the scars left by history in his two countries of origin and in the minds of his compatriots. During this evening, two videos of the artist shot in Japan and relating to the Vietnam War will be screened. Their broadcast will be followed by a discussion with Mael Bellec, chief curator at the Cernuschi Museum, where one of these two films was shown last year in the "Cernuschi Art Video" program. Admission is free, but around 20 pre-reserved places are available for members of the Society of Friends of the Museum.
