BIOGRAPHY

“I have always been interested in the relationship between the internal and external and history, in general. As my practice develops, my own personal history is becoming more and more important. I would like to unearth and superimpose it upon and in relation to much broader historical references. As an artist, I believe that art can be of great use in helping to explore history. Through the process of art-making, fragments of history and reality can be collated, from which re-imagined and untold images and stories can emerge.”

One of Vietnam’s most daring conceptual artists, Hoang Duong Cam (born 1974, Hanoi) completed his studies at the Hanoi University of Fine Arts in 1996. His oeuvre includes painting, photography, video installations, performance and collaborative projects. Although seemingly disparate, his overall practice playfully examines ideology, cultural difference and the structures of the inner and outer world with humor and keen insight. Often investigating the boundaries between the visible and the invisible, the artist states that he is concerned with the “contextualizing of expression, interpretation, association and the implicit relations between them.” Through deceptively simple gestures and images, he comments on the social and political world as it affects the body politic.

Hoang has participated in numerous exhibitions and biennales in Asia, North America and Europe. Notable exhibitions include VideoZone 5, the 5th International Video Art Biennial, Tel Aviv, Israel; Daegu Photo Biennale, Daegu, South Korea; Arts and Cities, Aichi Triennale, Nagoya, Japan; Connect: Art Scene Vietnam, ifa Galerie Berlin and Stuttgart, Germany; Fluid Zone, Jakarta Biennale, Indonesia; Post-Doi Moi: Vietnamese Art After 1990, Singapore Art Museum, Singapore; the 3rd Guangzhou Triennial, Guangdong Museum, Guangzhou, China; Migration Addicts (with Mogas Station), a collateral event of the 52nd Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy; Thermocline of Art. New Asian Waves, ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art, Karlsruhe, Germany; and Belief (with Mogas Station), Singapore Biennale 2006.  In 2009 he held a residency at the acclaimed Tokyo Wonder Site, Japan.

Hoang Duong Cam has been living and working in Ho Chi Minh City since 2001.
