Dinh Q. Lê: Monuments & Memorials is the first major solo exhibition from Internationally acclaimed, multiple award-winning artist Dinh Q. Lê in Singapore. Born in Vietnam, his family immigrated to the US at the age of ten to escape the Khmer Rouge.
At STPI, Lê revisits this historical event to create stunning photo-montages where he weaves photographic strips into a tapestry of images, a continuation of his artistic practice in the medium of print and paper. From elaborate cyanotypes to exquisite foiling works, Lê examines and captures the splendour and darkness of Cambodian history through its enduring legacy of architectural monuments and photographic memorials. His works encapsulate the common human experience of loss and redemption, merging Eastern and Western cultures, as well as personal and fictional realities.
