Khánh Nguyên H. Vũ is [goes by just: Vũ] is an artist that was born in, Bien Hoa, Viet Nam. They create works ranging from paintings to installations. Space becomes time and language becomes image, their work opens a unique poetic vein that reflects upon the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, they tries to develop forms that do not follow binary systems that we were brought up around. Their works serve as a safe space for radically honest self reflection. Vũ currently lives and works in Miami.
“Informed by a strict Vietnamese Catholic upbringing, the artist has recently used the spiritual practices they were exposed to as a child as a starting point to explore their queer, nonbinary personhood, reclaiming rituals that once burdened them. In these paintings, rites such as communion and funerals become visual settings for meditations on memory, loss, and rebirth.” - The Bakehouse Art Complex
