MoT Doi Gai | A Beach Life
Cam Xanh

opening: Saturday June 22, 2019
6.30pm @ MoT+++

often known as the world’s oldest profession, Cam Xanh’s exhibition MoT Doi Gai | A Beach Life explores the theme of prostitution at a conceptual level. starting with a quote from Gore Vidal that “we are all prostitutes in one sense or another, ethically if not sexually”, the exhibition goes on to investigate the contemporary relationships between feminism, love and sexuality, art, beauty, power, economics, and the potential for exploitation that emerges at their intersections.

MoT Doi Gai | A Beach Life is the culmination of Cam Xanh’s close studio in the MoT+++ space. Cam Xanh’s close studio is the second in a series of occupations of the gallery space from the MoT+++ collective.

 

about the artist:
Cam Xanh is the pseudonym of conceptual artist Tran Thanh Ha (b.1977, Vietnam). translated as Green Orange from Vietnamese, it is the first of many playful departures from the expected that characterise her work. her physical works are often based on texts and poetry, or developed from previous performances by the artist. they take on many forms such as installation, sculpture, painting and video, and often include elements only activated by audience participation. in 2016 she was a speaker for the ASIA YOUNG 36 exhibition at the Jeonbuk Museum of Art in Seoul, Korea and founded independent art space MoT+++ in 2015 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. in 2018 she co-founded A. Farm, an international art residency, to further support the growth of the Vietnamese art scene. her work can be found in the collections of the Nguyen Art Foundation and the Singapore Art Museum (SAM).

 

on view: Tuesday – Saturday, 2 – 6pm, until Friday July 5, 2019.
location: MoT+++, Saigon Domaine, Ground Floor, 1057 Binh Quoi, Ward 29, Binh Thanh District, Ho Chi Minh City.
