Bang Nhat Linh

Bang Nhat Linh (b. 1983, Vietnam) graduated from the Vietnam University of Fine Arts in 2005. Working primarily as a visual artist, he is also well-known as a collector of war memorabilia, which he transforms and recontextualizes as communicable and interactive objects. Linh cites the human condition as a primary concern and inspiration for his artistic practice, which delves into themes of memory, history, and the oblivion of submerged psychological spaces. His notable exhibitions include Illuminated Curiosities, Nguyen Art Foundation, HCMC, Vietnam, 2022; SUNSHOWER: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia 1980s to Now, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan, 2017; Miền Méo Miệng / Contemporary Art from Vietnam, Bildmuseet, Umeå, Sweden, 2015; and The Vacant Chair, Nha San Collective, Hanoi, and Dia Projects Dong Khoi, HCMC, Vietnam, 2015.
