PHUONG NGO: DOMINO THEORY

Domino Theory is the theory that a political event in one country will cause similar events in neighbouring countries. By reinterpreting Domino Theory through the key players involved with Communism and the Vietnam War, this exhibition focuses on how this conflict was realised in relation to the ideals that prompted the actions of the West.

Art Exhibition previously on at Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) in Victoria, Australia.
From Friday 13 April 2012 to Sunday 27 May 2012

History that I have had no part in making defines who I am as a Vietnamese Australian/Australian Vietnamese. Cold War theories and policies that have resulted in a fortunate life here in Australia mean that I have gained from the misfortunes of war, while others are forced to live with the fall out.

The exhibition is an investigation into my existence and the existence of a generation born following the Vietnam War. It analyses the relationship between those who determine war and those who have been forced to live with its consequences.
