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.
Dream Sequence has been newly created for lockdown, this is a new digital program comprised of 10 works by 10 Western Sydney artists broadcast live on our website over 10 months. Find out more about this ongoing series here.
The program is made possible through the generous support of Create NSW.
