This catalogue was produced on the occasion of the exhibition entitled 'Wordless Vo Ngon: Zenei Gang of Five' held from February to March 2010 in Hanoi, Vietnam. Zenei comprises of a group of five young calligraphers who practice and produce artistic variations of Calligraphy in Nom, the ancient script of Vietnam.

'By composing and decomposing, creating and composting, the Zenei group strips the language to its essence, creating a living, visual experience with indiscernible form, sound or meaning. Each of the five artists in Zenei have their own unique way of relating to this script in order to make it live again. Mirroring life itself, each approach emerges from a different seed and viewpoint.' (excerpts from Preface)

This catalogue includes list of works, two essays, and biographies of each of the five members of the Zenei group.
