On view at Amant thru September 2023

Sung Tieu’s exhibition continues her ongoing research into the psychological and physical dimensions of hidden threats and how they affect the social life of communities. Through different study subjects, she analyzes how private and state agencies use infrastructure and bureaucracy to exert psychological and informational control.

By blurring the lines between evidence and counter-evidence, fact and fiction, Sung Tieu’s work presents the limits of our capacity to fully distinguish between the known and unknown. Throughout the exhibition, she explores how information, or the lack thereof, can change perception, affecting our bodies and ways of understanding our environment.

Sung Tieu (b.1987 in Hai Duong, Vietnam) is a German-Vietnamese artist based in Berlin. Her artistic practice spans a variety of mediums including sound, video, sculpture, photography, public interventions and writing.

Amant is a non-profit arts organization in Brooklyn, New York that fosters experimentation and dialogue through exhibitions, public programs, and artist residencies. This exhibition is supported by the Goethe-Institut.
