Mythology and Protest: Vietnamese-American Artist Tuan Andrew Nguyen
Why We Recommend it
Vietnamese-American artist Tuan Andrew Nguyen’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong presents objects exploring the dynamics between myth, protest and more.
The show My Ailing Beliefs Can Cure Your Wretched Desires features art objects that explore the relationship between mythology, worship, animal extinction, human consumption and political protest.
Nguyen’s work deals with strategies of political resistance through rituals, the making of objects (both as testimony and as devotion), supernaturalism and the impact of mass media on these moments of resistance.
