Artist Statement:

“Spring Comes Winter After” is one of my video works that utilize the visuals of death rituals as a vehicle to connect with the past and memories. The work used the footage captured at the public funeral of Le Dat, an important poet who was banned for decades in Vietnam. Le Dat was a central figure of 
a late-1950s literary and intellectual movement in Northern Việt Nam called ‘Nhan Van-Giai Pham (Humanism and Works of Beauty)’. Demanding freedom of expression for artists and writers under communism, the movement was soon repressed by the government. As avant-garde artists like Le Dat were forced to be silent, Vietnamese art and literature suffered decades of decay.

 

Connecting to the political and historical situation of the country, the piece provokes some questions still impermissible to be asked publicly in present-day Vietnam, one being – What if one can play history in reverse and then replay it again?
