Rokovoko (Mogas Station) - Le mois de l'image, Fine Art Museum, 4-14 October, 2007, Ho Chi Minh city

Comprised of seven Ho Chi Minh City-based artists and architects, Mogas Station is the result of an encounter that represents varying kinds of migration. The multicultural and interdisciplinary nature of the group illustrates the dynamism and cosmopolitanism of today’s Ho Chi Minh City.



Mogas Station presents a video titled Rokovoko, filmed in 2007 for the Venice Biennale.
Each taking turns on a white plank, the members of the collective navigate the uncontrollable sea. The immaculate raft, suggesting a chunk of an iceberg, is a virgin earth. And the raft is floating, like social and cultural phenomena establishing a relationship with a larger world.
Queequeg was a native of Rokovoko, an island far away to the West and South. It is not down on any map; true places never are.
Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Location: Fine Arts Museum - 97A Pho Duc Chinh - District 1 - Ho Chi Minh city
