Biographical Text

Born in 1975 in Hanoi, Giang moved to Ho Chi Minh City with her family when she was eight years old. Widely recognised as in important voice in contemporary Vietnamese art, she was twice selected, in 1997 and 1999, as “One of the Top Ten Young Artists of Ho Chi Minh City”. After graduating from Ho Chi Minh Fine Art University she spent a further four months on an art scholarship at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In 2004, Giang was also a Resident Artist recipient of the CAVE Organisation in New York. Well versed in feminist theories that impact contemporary Vietnamese society, she resists infiltrating her work with the seduction of poetic embellishments as she circumvents typical romantic narratives commonly associated with Vietnamese silk painting.
