The Floating Hamlet


Rubén Martín de Lucas invites us to reflect on the ways of inhabiting in places such as Vietnam, Cambodia or Myanmar through this pictorial compendium of architectural typologies that emerge when mankind has to live on water. A project of poetic investigation on this precarious form of life in which the artist works by intervening through his own photographs taken between 2009 and 2012 in Southeast Asia and still visible in some areas of the canvas.

Villages built on the sea in Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, precarious shacks that float on empty barrels in Tu Long, fishermen on the waters of Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia or ramshackle boats that, like caravans, float down the Irrawaddy river in Myanmar are some of the images captured by Martín de Lucas in a show that brings us the precarious conditions in which part of humanity lives.
