Nguyen Trinh-Thi is a Hanoi-based film/media artist. Her moving image work – including experimental documentary films, single-channels and video installations—consistently engage with memory and history, and reflect on the roles and positions ofartists in society. Her materials are diverse – from video and photographs shot by herself to those appropriated from various sources including press photos, corporate videos, and classic films; her practice traverses boundaries between film and video art, installation and performance. Nguyen’s works have been shown at international festivals and exhibitions including the 9th Asia Pacific Triennale; Sydney Biennale; Jeu de Paume, Paris; CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux; the Lyon Biennale 2015; Asian Art Biennial 2015, Taiwan; Fukuoka Asian Art Triennial 2014; Singapore Biennale2013; and Rotterdam International Film Festival.
