VN artistís message spans art bridge (September 15, 2004)

Artist Bui Cong Khanh.
A young artist from Hoi An Town has taken a stunning work to the international performance art conference in Seoul, the Republic of Korea.

Bui Cong Khanh showed his 10-minute video montage Agent Orange. The clip has no dialogue, only a tormenting audio track and the prose of several letters running across the bottom of the screen.

He will read also read a poem about Agent Orange victims entitled Have Ė Donít have as part of his performance.

Ö She has eyes but she canít see
She has mouth but she canít speak and laugh
She has ears but she canít hear
She has feet but she canít step
She has hands but she canít hold
She has heart but it is fluttering
She has a life but someone has taken it

ďI will bring several petitions supporting Vietnamese Agent Orange victims home from the conference,Ē Khanh said.

Travelling with him to the conference are two other young artists, Nguyen Pham Trung Hau and Rich Tran.

The conference, which will end on September 17, draws artists from Canada, Chile, Columbia, the UK, Estonia, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Republic of Korea.
