Cu Chi Plus Zéro - 2017 - CC+0

Our project ? Create an artist's residency in Vietnam, bringing together 15 international artists.

When ? From the 20th of january to the 20th of april 2017, starting with the celebration of the Chinese New Year, the year of the fire cock !

Where, exactly ? At Cu Chi (30km from Ho Chi Minh) in La Quy Tung's studio, visual artist and production designer for movies. During the three months of this experience, La Quy Tung offers his studio (300m2) to artists as a perfect space to realize this project.

Cu Chi's area is also known for its tunnels built during the americano-vietnamese conflict.



In 2006, La Quy Tung and Xavier de Kepper met themselves for the first time and a strong friendship is built. In 2012, they organize at Cu Chi the workshop FPDV, in which a dozen of artists were invited, including Flora Kam.This workshop received the support of the Atelier Blanc, Midi-Pyrénées area, the French institute and the fine arts association of Ho Chi Minh ville.

In January 2016, Flora Kam and Xavier de Kepper create Plus Zéro, with the aim to develop interactions and meetings between artists from over the world.

Plus Zéro is an association of visual art (law 1901), born in january 2016. Founded by Flora Kam and Xavier de Kepper, the team is composed of Marie-Christine Larcher, Henri Barre, Charles Robin Sütçü, Christophe Gicquel and Eric Gossec.

All the creations and editions of Plus Zéro are 100 % handmade ! We work in the the Pyrenean mountains. Today, we already worked with more of 60 artistes from 15 different countries !

CC+0 project is built on a strong friendship between Plus Zéro and La Quy Tung, with the idea to bring together artists from over the world and share a unique experience of life.

The artists invited are : A4 Putevie (France), Anna Haifisch (Allemagne), Diego Lazzarin (Italie), Eric Gossec (France), Flora Kam (France), Henri Barre (France), Jon Horn (USA), Karla Solano (Costa Rica), La Quy Tung (Vietnam), Nils Bertho (France), Roméo Julien (France), Thibault Pétrissans (France), Tony Cheung (Chine), Vanessa Dakinsky (France), Whiskey Radish (USA) & Xavier de Kepper (France).

Many Vietnamese artists will be also invited to the adventure. 


What will we do at Cu Chi ?

During three months, a workshop around paper and handmade editions will be set. The artists will be invited to share their feelings of what they are experiencing at Cu Chi. Zines, art books, limited editions will be made in situ, and a transcription of the works will be done after the residency in Vietnam, France, and maybe other other countries...

This project will be the first step to our dreamed goal : create a permanent artistic exchange between France and Vietnam.

We will have the opportunity to work with the contemporary art space Zerostation, and to be part of the Asian Invisible Station project ( with the objective to strengthens the asian artistic scene).

You will find below the map of the main collaborators in HCMC. We started already a collaboration with Chao Down Town. After the residency, we will also work on some events with the comix festival Short Run at Seattle.

Allocation of funds

This Kiss Kiss Bank Bank collect will allow us to finance a part of the project CC+0 : 16400 €.


Repartition of the budget:


- Host & meal : 10800 €

(Hotel + meal + salary of a cook - Detail : 1 person / 1 day > 8 € - 1 person / 3 months > 720 € - 15 persons x 3 months > 10800 €

- Conception of the gifts and postal charges : 2400 €

- Charges for the return of the works via container : 900 €

- Transport charges (location and gasoline) : 900 €

- Percentage Kiss Kiss Bank Bank : 1312 €


If we realize our objectif, we will be VERY happy.

If we collect more, we will also invest everything to improve the workshop :

Let's dream :

+ 1000 € : Buy some materials to improve the quality of the impressions (silkscreen, big books, beautiful paper, color prints...)

+ 5000 € : It will goes directly for the next workshop in Cu Chi !

+ 15000 € : YEAH ! We can organize the next workshop in Cu Chi and improve our objectives. 


Precisions :

- The budget will be mainly dedicated to the accommodation (host and meals).

- In Vietnam, La Quy Tung, helped with private vietnamese funds, will make some construction works to improve the reception of the artists (creation of an other bathroom, an internet network, expansion of the studio's surface).Many materials will be at the disposition of the artists (paper, ink, paintings, wood, canvas...), and also the printing machine.

- The airplane ticket, passport and visa will be on the artist's charge.

La Quy Tung / Flora Kam / Xavier de Kepper
