We recently had the pleasure of visiting an exhibition in London called “No Place Like Home (A Vietnamese Exhibition) Part II” at the Museum of the Home, where our next Feature Friday artist is currently exhibiting her wonderful work.
Artist Duong Thuy Nguyen is inspirational, bright, perceptive, and creative, and uses all effectively to achieve the main objective of her work, which is to get us all thinking more deeply about issues surrounding social cohesion, community identity, and the interaction between humans and nature.
About Duong Thuy Nguyen
Duong was born in Hanoi, Vietnam. It was there that she originally bore witness to social issues that would shape her future as an artist. Growing up in a developing country, she came face-to-face with problems endemic to the region, such as environmental destruction, gender, and racial discrimination. Duong wanted to do something to communicate these issues and educate to bring about knowledge and change across different communities and countries.
