A Five-Part Dossier on How Things Live
By Andrew Maerkle
In August 2010 ART iT met with the artist Danh Vo in Los Angeles, where he was preparing material for his first ever solo show in the US at Artists Space, New York, on view from September 15 to November 7 of that year. The material from that interview has been edited and reimagined as a collection of five thematic spaces – or encounters – relevant to the discussion of Vo’s work. There is no particular order to these encounters, which are presented with minimal framing as textual artifacts, much like files grouped together in a dossier.
