Kardinal, 2010Price on request
Danh Vo often uses family photographs for his photogravure projects, embedding his own family’s biography in a wider historical context. The photogravure Kardinal is created from a family photo from Vo’s personal archive. It depicts an encounter between his grandmother, who plays a central role in Vo’s work, and a Catholic cardinal. Western, especially Catholic, influence in Vietnam is a recurring theme in Vo’s work, whose own family escaped Vietnam a self-built boat, which was intercepted by a Danish shipping freighter. The family was later granted refuge in Denmark.
