Nguyễn Thị Diệp graduated from Vietnam University of Fine Art. Her art practice officially started with her participation in Young Fine Arts Festival 2011. In 2021, Diệp began experimenting more with other artistic languages such as video art and performance art. Her art often concerns simplicity in everyday life and takes root in her honest and humble experiences. Her most recent art projects and exhibitions she participated include: ‘Heart on the margins’ (Manzi Art Space, 2023); various performance art workshops (Hay Là & APD, 2022-23); ‘Một câu đựng trời trong cơi đựng trầu’ (Vietnam Women’s Museum, 2022); IN:ACT 2022 (Nhà Sàn Collective & Á Space, 2022); ‘Morning – Noon – Afternoon – Evening’ (Á Space, 2022); ‘Đèn kéo quân’ (APD, 2022); ‘Till later letters’ (Á Space, 2022).

Lê Thuận Uyên is currently Curator/Artistic Director of The Outpost – a Hanoi based private organization committed to the collection, presentation, and discussion of contemporary art in Vietnam. Informed by her former training in political science, Uyen is interested in alternative histories, personal narratives that are rendered absent or undesirable by the official record. Her practice is also concerned with the investigations of forms and ideas within the social context and aesthetic traditions of Vietnam. Uyên is also a keen advocate for integrating art experiences into the universal educational system, as well as building capacity for the Vietnamese art landscape. Some of her past curatorial projects include: Fractured Times (The Outpost, Hanoi, 2022); Domestic Bliss (Ilham Gallery, KL, 2019); Gang of Five Chancing Modern (Hanoi, 2017); Sindikat Campursari (Jakarta, 2016);…

Á Space is pleased to invite you to the performance that concludes cong cong vênh vênh, Nguyễn Thị Diệp’s first solo exhibition, and participate in a talk with the artist and curator after the performance ends. With close attention paid to the somewhat unusual shape or state of things; to the floating and condensed elements of different white colors that the artist encounters in her everyday life, the performance continues Diệp’s train of thought in her series of new works in ‘cong cong vênh vênh’. The event starts at 18:30 and continues with an intimate conversation with the artist. On this occasion, Diệp will share with the audience various visual notes from 2017 to now detailing that led her to her current interests. On the other hand, Diệp’s transformation in materials and practice will also be articulated  in this conversation. 

The event is coordinated by curator Lê Thuận Uyên and is part of Nguyễn Thị Diệp’s solo exhibition, ‘cong cong vênh vênh’. The exhibition opens from 16:00 to 20:00 from Wednesdays to Sundays from October 20 to November 12, 2023 at Á Space.
