Ly Hoang Ly
Ly Hoang Ly (b. 1975, Vietnam) is an artist and poet whose work questions the general human condition and the fluctuating nature of identity. Through an examination of history and the critical state of society, her multidisciplinary practice addresses issues in our shared experiences of division and union, adaptation and acceptance. Ly graduated from the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts University in 1999 before receiving a Fulbright Scholarship for an MFA, with a major in sculpture, at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013. Her public sculpture works can be found in Ho Chi Minh City, where she resides. Ly has also exhibited widely both locally in Vietnam and internationally in Asia, the USA, and Europe. Her poems have been translated and published in English, Korean, Chinese and French.
