The work Banquet Group (XO) by Phung-Tien Phan is characterized by Vietnamese death cult, which is processed by the artist for viewers. Looking into her private life, questions of prosperity and living conditions are repeatedly brought to the fore. She documents the speed and juxtaposition of traditions as well as ongoing change in our society. Phan deals with these questions humorously and self-deprecatingly.
