After a month staying at New Space Arts Foundation, Janneke Kornet has learned about the spiritual culture in Hue and created many artworks about Thien Y A Na by agarwood, as well as the artworks about the worshipping culture by sand and incense sticks through the artwork “Hue”, and some others made from Truc chi (bamboo) and votive paper, etc.

Sharing about the creative ideas at the exhibition, Janneke Kornet said: “Spiritual culture in Vietnam attracts me for a deep inquiry because this is the difference and uniqueness which cannot be found in the Netherlands. After the exhibition in Hue, I will bring back these artworks to display in an exhibition in the Netherlands”.

The exhibition of Janneke Kornet will last until February 5.
