Nguyen Kim Duy

Nguyễn Kim Duy (b.1987, Vietnam) is a multidisciplinary artist whose work questions the changing conditions of time and space in art and language. He uses modest materials such as paper to explore minimalism, experimentation and abstraction. Text appears regularly in his artworks as an allegory for the transmutation of information across individual subjectivities and temporalities. After graduating in painting from the Hanoi Fine Art University, Vietnam in 2008, he moved to Germany in 2010 to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg. In 2018, Duy was chosen as a Season 0 artist for the A. Farm international art residency in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and became a member of the MoT+++ collective.

Studio Visit with Nguyễn Kim Duy

Quynh Nguyen, Founder of Nguyen Art Foundation, visited Nguyễn Minh Thành in his Hanoi studio on 27 November 2020. Minh Thành shared how the outside world shaped his thinking and practice, the early stage of his art career, the way he thought painting exists in the human’s world, the true selves of human that he recognized from his practice, and how he chose to side with the flutters of his heart.
