Anne Bennike, Soren Thilo Funder, and Theis Wendt (Denmark) and Pham Hoai An, Nguyen Minh Dieu Huong, and Vuong Bich Ngoc (Vietnam) had three weeks to “cast a spell” and change the exhibition space into a shop made entirely of bamboo.

The shop is a mixture of the various cultures and has individual and group works made of various materials on display.

The concept of the exhibition is to give visitors the new experience of seeing exhibits in the ambiance of a shop.

The event, a collaboration between Cultural Development and Exchange Fund and the Danish Arts Council and handled by Danish curator Toke Lykkeberg, will remain open until August 21. Entry is free.
