The event is being held to commemorate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Japan.

The exhibition will showcase various artworks depicting the moon in different phases, seasons, weathers, times of day, and shades of color. These artworks will be accompanied by specifically chosen waka poems.

The organizer highlights that the artworks and poems are displayed together.

Saeko Ando, born in Japan in 1968, has become known for her traditional Vietnamese lacquer art and painting. Her unique blend of traditional Vietnamese lacquer techniques with a Japanese sensibility has gained her widespread acclaim.

Aside from her artistic pursuits, Ando is also recognized as a researcher in the field of natural lacquer and has shared her expertise at conferences and seminars worldwide.

In addition to the exhibition, Ando’s opera project “Princess Anio” will be premiering at the Hanoi Opera House from September 22 to September 24.

This follows her previous lacquer painting exhibition, “Microcosmos x Macrocosmos – Hoi An, Where I live between two cosmoses,” which was held in Hoi An in early August.
