“It’s not about the result. It’s about the process. In the process we can learn a lot more than we think about the product.” – Phuc Van Dang

Arriving with an empty canvas, an open heart, and his striking signature one-shot, black-on-white style, Phuc Van Dang brings his philosophy of becoming to the END OF THE LINE.

"THE TRANSFORMATIONS" is the culmination of a weekend spent creating a portrait of the Aarhus University Hospital area, and a 10 hour intensive workshop guided by Van Dang, where a collective of artists selected by AARHUSMAKERS will respond to each other’s interpretations of Van Dang’s work – like an expressive echo. Each new work fits into the others, and stands on its own.

Alongside Phuc Van Dang, The Transformations will feature new creative expressions from Maria Płażek, Mariana Gil Photography, VHS-Fabrikken, Mathieu Durand, KIRSE, Juanjo Keena, Alex Newman, Jan Nixon, and Rosanna Stevens.

After decades of artistic practice reflecting on the story of his life – as a designer, creative, teacher, and a refugee – Phuc Van Dang asks artists and audiences alike to get comfortable with the beautiful, raw, and strange feeling of transformation.

You are invited to witness the intimate process of reworking, as Van Dang’s renderings become something you can hear, see, feel, touch and read. Whatever happens, the result awaits you at "THE TRANSFORMATIONS".

‘I think if we take away all these lines and restrictions about what transformation is and say, you can transform whatever you want to do in your life, then you can make a decision, and believe in it.’ - Phuc Van Dang
