Adrift from the Fall
4 June – 25 July 2021
The events that precede us will inevitably inform who we are, in ways that cannot be comprehended. The fall of Saigon in 1975 triggered the first wave, one that would displace countless people, killing countless more, and forever imbed a sense of loss in a diaspora that spans the globe.
Adrift from the Fall brings together key works by Vietnamese-Australian artist Phuong Ngo, reconfigured and reimagined to consider the complex and complicated narratives of loss, survival, and the totality of war.
