This drawing series “Cytokinesis Landscape” was shown in my solo exhibition “Organic Matter” in a museum in Vietnam. This exhibition consists of a series of drawings as well as silk sculptures, which are inspired by a Japanese architectural movement Metabolism. I was particularly interested in the Metabolist idea of considering architecture as living beings, and also having a cylinder or some big structure with small units around. From this idea, I produced drawings and soft architecture made out of silk, which is a Vietnamese traditional material. By having those works together according to the shape of the museum space, I created a dialogue between horizontal and vertical in my 2D work and depth and volume in my 3D work.
