Nha San Collective - Hoang Duong Cam
One of Vietnam’s most daring conceptual artists, Hoang Duong Cam (born 1974, Hanoi) completed his studies at the Hanoi University of Fine Arts in 1996. His oevre includes painting, photography, video installations, performance and collaborative projects. Although seemingly disparate, his overall practice playfully examines ideology, cultural difference and the structures of the inner and outer world with humor and keen insight. Often investigating the boundaries between the visible and the invisible, the artist states that he is concerned with the “contextualizing of expression, interpretation, association and the implicit relations between them.” Through deceptively simple gestures and images, he comments on the social and political world as it affects the body politic.
