Dark Side of the Moon drawings I - XIII, 2013 – 2014. Silkscreen, acrylic, and pencil on mylar, 46" x 72".
For the Dark Side of the Moon series, Vu created 36 works, 18 in Beijing, and 18 in New York. The pieces are twelve hours apart – literally, half the world away – and titled in pairs. Each “West” piece has a corresponding “East” piece, one of which is black, and one of which is white. Thus the works become magnetic poles and the physical space between them becomes part of the work. They shall never meet – each is the other’s dark side, without hierarchy.
