2021 12 Future stars of the art world (…)  12th December, The Times


Whether painting, craft, installation or performance, each work reflects a transformation of the objects of my French-Vietnamese heritage. It allows me to take on a narrative dimension on the themes of the domestic and displacement. My works affirm their materiality through gestures borrowed from everyday life, the ones of the women in my family and community.

Each installation/performance aims to create with the public an instantaneous community allowing to reverse some situation of displacement encountered by the immigrants. All these mundane objects or everyday gestures I use in my practice are linked to the concept of Home and create a bridge between the different places (Vietnam, France and the exhibition space in London) and the different people (the Vietnamese community, the artist and the viewer) giving substance to the stories.
