b. 1981, Hanoi
Born in 1981 and graduated from the Vietnam University of Fine Arts in 2006, Tuấn Mami is a Hanoi-based multidisciplinary artist whose practice spans across installation, video, performance and conceptual art. Constantly exploring new methods of expression, Tuấn Mami burst into the international art scene for his daring, and increasingly meditative experimentations in both private and public spaces, analyzing the condition of human encounters (with each other and with the world around them) and critiquing the current state of society; while also attempting to shift or change (the perception of) this state. Other than being as a creator, Tuấn also participates and contributes greatly in the development of the local art scene, founding the mobile art centre MAC-Hanoi in 2012, and co-founding Nhà Sàn Collective in 2013; while performing as Visiting Faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute in the same year. He has participated in numerous exhibitions, art events and residencies, both at home and abroad including ‘Skylines with Flying people 3’ (Hanoi, 2014-2016), ‘In.Visible Borderline’ (MetaHouse Art Space, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, 2016), ‘Krisis’ (Bonington Gallery, Nottingham, UK, 2016), ‘Plastic Myths’ (Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, South Korea, 2015) etc.
