Nguyễn Thế Sơn

biography

Son was born in 1978 in Hanoi and holds an MA in Photography from the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), Beijing, China. With ten years of experience using photography as a medium to engage in both past and present social and historical issues, he has established a unique and impressive body of work, whilst continuously challenging the definition and role of contemporary photography in Vietnam. The final outcome of Son’s work, which comes in various forms such as traditional silk painting and lacquer or photography installation and video art, is often the result of an enduring research process where different disciplines and systems of knowledge production merge and collide.


Son has held numerous solo exhibitions, most notable recently including: ‘City and Memory’ – Art Vietnam, AGOhub art space, Hanoi – 2018; ‘Colour of the sound’ – K-art gallery, Korea National University of Arts, Seoul – 2017; ‘Devant derrière (Changing Face) – L’espace, Hanoi – 2016; ‘8m2’ – Goethe Institut, Hanoi – 2015; ‘Nhà Tây Transforms’ – Manzi Art Space, Hanoi – 2013. He also participated in many international projects and group exhibitions in China, Sweden, France, Hongkong, Indonesia, Malaysia,.. In 2016, his mobile installation ‘…Carrying the Carriers…’ was included in the public art project ‘Into Thin Air’ – Manzi Art Space.
