Haunting and provocative, Dinh Q. LÍ's billboard-scale works interweave stills from Vietnamese films with war pictures, news photographs and archival documentary images. This interweaving is literal--the artist slices giant appropriated pictures into strips and then intermingles them as if they were the wicker used to make a basket or the rags used to make a rug, a reworking of traditional weaving techniques taught to him by his grandmother. The resulting photo collage has a pixilated quality but a handmade physicality and offers an overwhelmingly large-scale juxtaposition of images that fight and question and confuse one another.
