Letters from Panduranga How to Improve the World Landscape Series #1

Nguyen Trinh Thi

Nguyen Trinh Thi (b. 1973, Vietnam) received her MA in Journalism from the University of Iowa in 1999, and her Master of International Pacific Studies from the University of California, San Diego, US in 2005. Her moving image work – including documentary and experimental films, single-channels and video installations – consistently engages with memory and history, and reflects on the roles and positions of art and artists in society. Her materials are diverse – from video and photographs shot by herself to those appropriated from various sources including press photos, corporate videos, and classic films; her practice traverses boundaries between film and video art, installation and performance. She has taken part in numerous international exhibitions and art events, such as documenta 15, Germany; the 9th Asia Pacific Triennial, Australia; the Lyon Biennale 2015, France; Asian Art Biennial 2015, Taiwan; Fukuoka Asian Art Triennial 2014, Japan; Singapore Biennale 2013, amongst others. Trinh Thi is the recipient of the Han Nefkens Foundation, Mori Art Museum, M+ and Singapore Art Museum – Moving Image Commission 2021.
