Dionisio González: Halong Series

Spanish artist and lecturer at the Universidad de Sevilla Dionisio González opened his second show at Galerie Richard titled ‘Halong Series.’ In this show Gonzalez tries his hand at urban development by digitally altering photographs of the Vietnamese islands in Halong Bay transforming them into a type of modern livable landscape of boathouses where Vietnamese residential spaces become part of the terrain. This Vietnamese area is known for the foreign tourism it attracts and the marine slums that occupy the peripheries. The works are an architectural reimagination of an area that has historically succumbed to the negative pressures of tourism. You can see Gonzalez’ work until October 12, 2013 at Galerie Richard.
