William Jolly Bridge Projection as part of BrisAsia Festival 2017
The William Jolly Bridge will be lit up with projections to celebrate BrisAsia Festival 2017, a showcase of contemporary and traditional Asian arts and cultural events, including workshops for creative practitioners who have a strong interest in Asia.
The William Jolly Bridge will be lit up with projections by the colourful work by Vanghoua Anthony Vue.
Vanghoua Anthony Vue’s eclectic practice recontextualises his Hmong heritage within his Australian upbringing and experience. Focusing on Hmong history and traditions, Vue takes an abstract and autobiographical approach to their reinterpretation and reinvention through an array of materials, influences and processes. Among Vue’s practice are investigations of ‘The Other’ and their representation within nation-states, postmemory as mediated through faded visual forms and oral history, and the reinvention of cultural traditions to explore their continuing relevance and potential to be transformed and diversified into new cultural contexts.
