Nguyễn Ngọc Thạch
b. 1991, HCMC
Born in Quang Ngai and graduated from Ho Chi Minh City University of Fine Arts in 2016, Nguyen Ngoc Thach (b. 1991) is an artist who works predominantly with oil painting. His recent practice is his exploration of the psyche, of human relationships and its social structures in relation to systems and attitudes of power. He is concerned with, and questions issues of injustice that is becoming normalized in everyday life. For Thach, his art is a dance with memory, a monologue with himself on social matters that affect him inwardly. Selected exhibitions include: Young Artist Biennale (Saigon, HCMC, 2017); Asian Students and Young Artists Art Festival & Hidden Artists Festival (Seoul, Korea, 2016).
