Nguyễn Huy An
Born in 1982 in Hanoi, Huy An graduated from the Fine Art University in 2008. He is considered one of the most dynamic and innovative artists of his generation. Huy An’s work has been a process of trying to dig into the darkness of psychology. Most of his projects have been under-laid with an obsession with memory and the complexities of a pessimistic perspective. From installations, performance art to paintings and sculptures, Huy An’s works are highly acclaimed by international art critics and curators for their introspective and simple yet strong concepts.
Huy An had 4 solo exhibitions: 'The four subjects' - Manzi Art Space, Hanoi - 2022, 'Âm Sáng' - Galerie Quynh, Ho Chi Minh City - 2019, ‘Calculus Exercise #6/5’ – Manzi Art Space, Hanoi – 2018 and ‘78 Rhythms’ - Galerie Quynh, Ho Chi Minh City – 2014; he also participated in numerous group exhibitions and performance art festivals (either as a solo artist or with his performance art group Phu Luc (Appendix) – which he co-founded in 2010) including: ‘Into Thin Air 2’ – the public art project, Manzi Art Space – 2018; ‘Looking for the Divine Beings’, Nha San Collective, Hanoi – 2017; ‘Vietnam Eye: Contemporary Vietnamese Art’ - Casa Italia, Hanoi – 2016; ‘14th Istanbul Biennial’ - Turkey – 2015; ‘Disrupted Choreographies’ - Carré d’Art Musée d’Art Contemporain, Nimes, France - 2014, ‘If The World Change’ - Singapore Biennale - 2013, ‘Sounds of Dust (Somniloquy)’ - 943 Studio Kunming, China - 2011.
