Having first started this practice in his studio in 2019 as a reprieve from his research, James has expanded this work for Dream Sequence into an embodied arts practice, steaming live to your living room. Using found objects and locally sourced flowers, leaves and vegetables, this work will explore the vessel, silence, nature, humanity, beauty, shape, line, form & structure.
James Nguyen works with documentary, installation and performance. He often collaborates with members of his family to examine the politics of art, self-representation and decolonising strategies in diasporic practice.
