An-My Lê at Hasselblad Center Gothenburg (February 21 - May 17, 2015)
The Hasselblad Foundation presents the first solo show in the Nordic countries by the Vietnamese-American photographer An-My Lê. An-My Lê’s art explores conflict by avoiding simple representations of war and the military machine. She maintains a certain distance from her subject, in order to create nuanced scenes that hover between documentary, fiction, play and battle. Driven both by personal experience, and by empathy, the resulting images embody a quiet and intense emotion.

This exhibition presents works from An-My Lê’s major photographic series to date. Viêt Nam (1994-1998) features images of the Vietnamese landscape; Small Wars (1999-2002) depicts Vietnam War scenes re-enacted in the forests of Virginia and North Carolina. The film installation 29 Palms (2003 – 2004) portrays American soldiers preparing for deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan. The recently completed epic work Events Ashore (2005-2014) involved An-My Lê travelling with the American armed forces. During the travels she explored the US military’s expanded global operations and the implications of war via quiet moments away from combat – an approach that is characteristic of her work.

An-My Lê (born in Vietnam in 1960) left Saigon with her family as a teenager in 1975 in the final days of the war and settled in the United States as a political refugee. She graduated first in biology from Stanford University, then in photography from Yale University. She lives and works in New York and is Professor of Photography at Bard College. An-My Lê has had major exhibitions throughout the United States and her work is held extensively in collections including the Museum of Modern Art New York, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris. The series Small Wars is included in Tate Modern’s group exhibition Conflict, Time, Photography, on view spring 2015. Her new book, Events Ashore, was recently published by Aperture Foundation.

The exhibition is curated by Kate Bush and organised by MK Gallery, Milton Keynes in partnership with the Hasselblad Foundation, Gothenburg and MAS - Museum aan de Stroom, Antwerp. FILM: An-My Lê and curator Kate Bush talk about the exhibition.

Program: Saturday 11 April, 1–2 pm, Artist talk with An-My Lê and Peter Galassi
