Inside Looking Out, A Refugee Experience

The Vietnamese Boat-people made the arduous journey across the sea in order to attain their freedom. Here, the filter of memory recalls the feeling of anticipation as they waited, mute with fear, for what was to come. Through video, drawing and sculptural works, Thanh has delved into the psychological makeup of her own past, re-constituting the fragments to reveal the inside, looking out.

Contemplating Daydream

There are some moments in life we all wish to be free from reality and dream of moment with pleasant thoughts, satisfaction, achievement and experience blissful happiness in paradise. This is the dazed state of mind with body free from gravity, burden and responsibilities. Thanh has expressed this emotional gesture of contemplative thoughts through the free floating sculptures and video in her installation.
