Urbanista #15 Exploring abandoned Thuy Tien sculpture creation camp, Hue, Vietnam

Hue held five international sculpture camps in 1998, 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008 producing 140 works. Most of the pieces were put on display at parks along Huong River.

Dozens of sculptures were installed at Thuy Tien Tourist Resort, but the resort stopped operations more than five years ago, so many of the works have been vandalised. Meanwhile, statues located at the Bavico Resort were actually damaged due to repair and construction of facilities in the resort. Hue City’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will post information about the statues such as their meaning and their authors. The department will then work with Hue Fine Arts University to select the best for moving to the city centre and repair damaged pieces. The sculptures are planned to taken to Bui Thi Xuan Park and another park on Kim Long Street.

The present location of the camp is next to the Abandoned Aqua Park. Anathor amazing place we will visit in one of our next trips.
