Tuan Mami

Mami is an interdisciplinary-experimental artist, working with site-specific installation, video, performance and conceptual art. He constantly explores new media, means and methods with reflective questioning, and social research.

In recent years, he has observed and explored the concept of how we are *human* on the move. Starting from 2014, Mami has been researching about moving communities in Vietnam and the Vietnamese diaspora around the world. He has tried to observe what has happened in these communities, what has remained, what has appeared and disappeared - culturally, mentally, politically in the effort to adapt and survive in their new contexts.

His focus is about life, social interactions between people, and between people and their environment. He aims to re-construct situations in order engage people or objects from particular reality to enter and involve together in a social process.  

Mami has held a number of solo exhibitions such as: “Protest Against the Void”, Defibrillator Gallery, Chicago, 2013; “24Hours Tension”, PØST, Los Angeles, 2013; “In a Breath-Nothing Stands Still”: in Art Rotterdam 2016; Factory art space, Hochiminh 2018; Teratotera, Tokyo 2018…
He has also participated in many international exhibitions including: “The Clouds Will Tell”, Changwon Sculpture Biennale, S.Korea 2014; “Plastic Myths”, ACC Gwangju, S.Korea 2015; “Krisis”, Nottingham, UK 2016; “Documenting Change- Our Climate”, The –­­­­­CU Art Museum, Colorado 2019; "Southeast Asia Performance Collection", The Haus Der Kunst, Munich 2019, “Co-Inspiration in Catastrophe”, MOCA Taipei, Taiwan ;  “Matter of Art”, Prague Biennale, Czech Republic 2020; documenta15, “Nhà Sàn Collective”, Kassel, 2022…
