Field: Visual arts

About the artist: Born in Hanoi, currently living and working in Ho Chi Minh City, Đặng Thùy Anh graduated from Vietnam University of Fine Arts in 2019, majoring in Graphic Design. Since 2017, Thùy Anh has engaged more frequently in experimental artistic practice through various performance art events and exploring different mediums such as photography and conceptual approaches to art making. Her interest revolves around the connection between humans and nature, visual motifs that are stereotypically understood; and the impact of social prejudice towards the conceptualization of gender. Thùy Anh often uses living organisms, her own body and her personal archives as materials in her art. Selected exhibitions include: Month of Art Practice (Heritage Space, Hanoi, 2018); Open Studio I, II & III (Á Space, Hanoi, 2018); Emerging Artists 6 (Nhà Sàn Collective, Hanoi, 2018); NIPAF Festival/IN:ACT (Nhà Sàn Collective, Hanoi, 2017 and 2019).
