LE BROTHERS (Le Ngoc Thanh & Le Duc Hai)
Geboren 1975, Bình Trị Thiên, Vietnam, leben und arbeiten in Hue City, Vietnam
Le Brothers are twin brothers who are forging a truly remarkable art career. Their unique approach to history, identity and the interpretation of the past in the present produces works that accelerate our understanding of unforgettable events which are presented as refined and dignified accounts that invite the viewer’s reflection, realization and a deeper respect for culture and custom.
Their practice explores an aesthetic where their art can for example, examine, dissect and question the post-war consciousness of North and South Vietnam.
