Sung Tieu is a London and Berlin based visual artist whose work takes place at the intersection of transnational movement, global capitalism and the cultural incursions of dematerialised art traditions. Tieu’s own emigration from Vietnam to Germany is central to her work, impelling her to address Post-Cold War histories and the diasporic experience of unfixed temporal and spatial certainties. Through performance, installation, moving image and sound, she conveys a sense of dislocation, often deliberately eluding narrative legibility. Recent and forthcoming projects this years include State of Motion, Asian Film Archive, Singapore, Loveless, Piper Keys, London, Parrhesiades, curated by Lynton Talbot, Flat Time House, London, Fragile, curated by Maurin Dietrich, Berlin, and “Images of a Nation”, a symposium as part of the forthcoming Don McCullin retrospective at Tate Britain.
