Damaged Gene

Door: Dinh Q. Lê.

“In an attempt to raise public awareness about the residual effects of Agent Orange in Vietnam, Lê then organized Damaged Gene (1998), a temporary public art project in Ho Chi Minh City’s central market. The project revolved around a small shop selling evidence of atrocity, such as specially produced clothing and pacifiers for conjoined twins and T-shirts informing people about the dangers of Dioxin.”
