Trong Gia Nguyen
Saigon, Vietnam , 1971
Often employing humour while at other times engaging sober reflection, Trong Gia Nguyen’s artistic practice elevates the condition of doubt and reveals the power structures behind our most trusted institutions and beliefs as they relate to issues of domesticity, culture, politics, and economy. The artist questions the status quo through subtle modes of subversion and interruption. On the flipside, it is an aesthetically pessimistic vantage point, one of retreat that espouses a dimension of decadence, at the expense of charlatanism.
