Mai Nguyen Thi Thanh

Term: May – July 2022

Art is a tool for her to observe and investigate herself. She began with the very first questions concerning gender, body, and the role of women in society, and then her perspectives and observations have gradually been expanded. Thanks to the encounters she had when she was following the migrants, the war veterans, the farmers as well as other people who she had met along the way, she had been given scattered, ambiguous fragments to visualise, imagine, connect with and pose questions about history and society around her. This process helps her position herself in the bigger picture of the world today. Upon her generation, she had found the post-war and Đổi mới, which serve as signs for her to continue to search, investigate and analyse the world around her with an ever-expanding perspective.
