As part of the exhibition "The silence is deafening" where sound, or the absence of sound is the central theme.
Dan tranh is a stringed instrument that is central to the folk music tradition in Vietnam. The sound of dan tranh has a distinctive melancholic and sorrowful tonality . I have transformed them into lacquer, depicting my continual interest in the relationship between human and nature. The broken, soundless and songless musical instrument have nuanced meaning. The feelings evoked by the sound of music exists only as an idea in the viewers’ imagination. The audience can not hear the music but only recall in their minds the sound of music.
