Mr. Dinh Q. Lê has passed away

Mr. Dinh Q. Lê, a Vietnamese artist participating in the exhibition “ICHIAHRA x ART x CONNECTIONS― Crossing of Worlds and Me,” passed away on April 6.
He had just returned to Vietnam from a one-week stay in Ichihara from March 17 for this exhibition.
On the completion of the work "The Bond that Ties," he spoke with heartfelt joy: I came up with the idea, but I did not move my hands at all. It was really a collaborative work created by the Vietnamese and Ichihara communities. It is a completely new challenge for me."
The sudden loss of a great artist representing Vietnam and Asia has sent shockwaves beyond the borders, and many people are mourning his passing.
We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Dinh for the beautiful work that he left behind, which connected diverse peoples, and express our sincere condolences to his soul.
