    For her first solo show at the gallery, Thu Van Tran has chosen the double-edged title Trail Dust, which conjures up transience and evanescence but is also the code name for the toxic spraying operations carried out by the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. The transience of life and the finality of death, the transformation of organic into mineral matter and the infinite timescales of mineralization and petrification processes are the themes of Thu Van Tran’s exhibition – as are such ongoing concerns as the nature and properties of the materials  onstituting her art, and how these materials might address such ever-present issues as the atrocities of the recent past. - Extract from the text by Rahma Khazam
