Khánh Nguyên Hoàng Vũ [goes by just: Vũ] (they/them) is a non binary Vietnamese immigrant who I seeks to manifest forms that will flow as if there are no borders or binaries. Vũ explores the role that spirituality plays in helping trans/queer individuals navigate through old and contemporary society. Their practice is a manifestation of their belief in the freedom of movement, a luxury, so it seems under the structures that form our reality. For their practice, Vũ's points of departures are migration and spirituality, and particularly the bridge between the material and the unseen world.




“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
