About Danh Vo - 关于傅丹

 

Danh Vo (b. 1975) is a Danish artist, who left Vietnam as a refugee with his family to live in Europe in 1979. His work is an intersection between art, global history and personal diary. A key characteristic in his works is the re-appropriation of authorship and historical events - Vo’s works are often inspired by his own experiences and include ready-made objects, which, through the context of a particular exhibition, become part of a historical narrative. In many of his pieces, his own life as a gay man and a Vietnam War refugee comes to light. Today, Vo currently lives and works in Berlin and Mexico. 

 

傅丹1975年生于越南,1979年同家人乘坐父亲修造的小船逃离出国,他们的目的地原本是美国,而全家在迷失的太平洋中被一艘丹麦的货柜船搭救,最终在丹麦定居。傅丹的作品大多充满了自传性的叙事,同时能超越个人因素,在内容方面表达对普遍性问题的观察和探讨,比如作为一个移民的状态。

傅丹现居墨西哥城。他曾就读于丹麦皇家艺术学院(1998-2002)和法兰克福艺术学院(2002-2005)。并在巴黎现代艺术博物馆、法兰西罗马艺术学院、芝加哥文艺复兴协会、丹麦国家美术馆、布雷根茨美术馆、卡塞尔弗里德利卡农美术馆、巴塞尔美术馆以及阿姆斯特丹市立博物馆举办过个展。2012年,他赢得Hugo Boss大奖,并于2013年3月在纽约古根海姆举办个展。同年,他的作品在威尼斯双年展展出。
