7. Splendor & Darkness (STPI) #15 (2017)
Internationally acclaimed artist Dinh Q. Lê (b. 1968) consistently challenges how our memories are recalled with context in contemporary life. He is known for his large-scale photo montages, where he weaves photographic strips into a tapestry of images that revolve around the theme of the Vietnam War. Such an approach surfaces in the works produced at STPI, and the resulting image is a rich, multi-faceted viewpoint of history. Lê utilises the artistic process as a tool for examining and unearthing history, exploring the universal themes of loss and redemption, merging personal and fictional realities into one.
