Phuong Linh Nguyen
PHUONG LINH NGUYEN (b. 1985, Vietnam. Lives and works in Hanoi, Vietnam) is an artist who’s multidisciplinary practice includes installation, sculpture and video. Her works explore issues of geographical and cultural shifts, and more specifically their effects on traditions and identity within Vietnam and its history. Her works dive into her country’s narratives, revealing the dichotomy of visible and invisible truth, form and time and depicts the pervasive sense of dislocation as a result.
Phuong Linh has had solo exhibitions locally (Goethe Institute, 2018; Galerie Quynh, 2012) , Thailand (Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre, 2018) and Japan (Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, 2011). She has participated in group exhibitions internationally including Germany (The District, 2019; Kunstverein Tiergarten, 2018; Lothringer13, 2018), Singapore (Singapore Art Museum, 2016; ), Japan (3331 Art Space, 2011; Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space, 2010;), China (Kuandu Museum, 2017; Power Station of Art, 2016), Korea (Korea Foundation, 2017; Gallery Loop, 2012; Seoul Art Space, 2012) and the USA (LBCC Art Gallery; 2013; Boston Art Center, 2013; School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2012); Aljiri Center of Contemporary Art, 2012). Phuong Linh has recently participated in the Singapore Biennale (2016), Kuandu Biennale (2016) and the Shanghai Biennale (2016). She was the receiver of the Pollock Krasner award (2017) and held ‘Trùng Mù– endless, sightless’, a solo exhibition for the Hans Nefkens BACC Award at the Bangkok Arts and Cultural Centre.
