MAI NGUYEN-LONG
Neat Severances

To see work scroll to the right

NG Art Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening of Mai Nguyen-Long's
Neat Severances on 12th November 2014, with opening address from Australian conceptual artist Ian Milliss.

Tasmanian-born to bi-cultural parents, Mai Nguyen-Long's work is informed by growing up/studying in Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, China, and Vietnam.

Mai's first exhibitions were in Manila and Hanoi in 1996. The Hanoi exhibition was recently recognized as the first official installation in Vietnam by the respected publication Vietnamese Contemporary Art 1990-2010, by Bui Nhu Huong & Pham Trung (2012).

 

Her recent solo exhibition Beyogmos, Wollongong Art Gallery (2014), curated by Gina Fairley, was her first collaboration with a curator, furthering her journey of coming to terms with conflicting experiences of cultural identity in Australia, especially different waves of migrants, inter-generational cultural adaptation and transitions.  

Neat Severances continues to process these ideas and experiences on a very personal level, employing imagery inspired by geographic and biological mappings, cultural symbols, and narrative.

As she moves through space and time marked by personal memory and general history, in mediums ranging from drawing, painting, sculpture, site-specific installations, performances and recently media-animations, her work is indexing places and people that often amount to more than difference. 

 

Join Mai Nguyen-Long for the opening of Neat Severances on Wednesday 12t November 6-8pm, on show at NG Art Gallery until 29th November.

Special thanks to Kon Gouriotis OAM.
