b. 1985, Ho Chi Minh City
Born in Danang, Lêna Bùi is currently living and working in Ho Chi Minh City. She is an emerging artist committed to the language of art as a poetic medium through which social complexities can be given alternate visualization. Having consistently worked with scientists since 2011, between Vietnam and Nepal, her art attempts to visually chart human behavior and perception as it traverses the tension between traditional and industrialized means of survival. ‘Flat Sunlight’ is her third project with the Oxford Clinical Research Unit in Vietnam and Nepal. Bùi received her BA from Wesleyan University, Connecticut, USA, with further study in East Asian Studies from Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan.
