Nguyen Trinh Thi

Studio Grant Holder in Umeå September - October 2018

Nguyen Trinh Thi is a Hanoi-based filmmaker/moving image artist. Her moving image work—including experimental documentary films, single-channels and video installations—consistently engage with memory and history, and reflect on the roles and positions of artists in society. Her materials are diverse – from video and photographs shot by herself to those appropriated from various sources including press photos, corporate videos and classic films; her practice traverses boundaries between film and video art, installation and performance.

Her works have been shown at international festivals and exhibitions including the Sydney Biennale; Jeu de Paume, Paris; CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux; the Lyon Biennale 2015; the Asian Art Biennial 2015, Taiwan; the Fukuoka Asian Art Triennial 2014; the Singapore Biennale 2013; the Jakarta Biennale 2013; and the Oberhausen International Film Festival.

In 2009, Nguyen founded Hanoi DOCLAB, an independent centre for documentary film and the moving image in Hanoi.
