Duy Hoàng’s practice focuses on the links between the connections/disconnections one experiences with their surrounding environment, between the mundanes to the phenomena, and from the potential of growth to the inevitability of decay. His work focuses on our relationship to the minute details around us in conjunction with the vast environment we are in. Hoàng entered the United States as a Vietnamese immigrant during his adolescent years and the transitional moment triggered his necessity for intensive observation and awareness.
Duy Hoàng has exhibited work at Festival Images Vevey, Switzerland; Wave Hill, New York; and Kleine Humboldt Galerie, Berlin, among others.
Nicolás Grum focuses his investigation on power relationships and its most diverse manifestations in different contexts. In the last years, he has been working specifically on museums from the western world, and collections acquired through colonial networks, providing a critique over museums representation and museological practice. He understands his work as a process that articulates through manipulation or re-interpretation of historical facts, in order to create an alternative narrative of what is imposed as “the official truth”.
Nicolás Grum has exhibited work at Beijing 798 Biennale; transmediale, Berlin; and Instituto Itaú Cultura, Sau Paulo, among others.
