ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

For her second solo exhibition at Tyler Rollins Fine Art, taking place in November and December 2010, Tiffany Chung will present a new series of works inspired by maps of urban regions, featuring embroidery and appliqué works on canvas in addition to a number of drawings on paper. Chung has been fascinated with maps for many years, not only for their graphic possibilities but also for what they say about both our relation to the past and our visions of the future. Her exhibition, entitled scratching the walls of memory, explores the topographic after- images of some of the past century’s most traumatic conflicts and includes maps of the Berlin Wall, the Korean DMZ, and the atomic bomb blast zones in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The exhibition marks a turning point in her work, as it is the first time she interweaves important historical events with personal and family history.

Chung is considered to be Vietnam’s most prominent female contemporary artist. She is noted for her sculptures, videos, photographs, and performance work that use an exuberantly pop aesthetic to conjure hyperreal visions of contemporary Vietnam, which function as candy-colored counterparts to the more typical “traumatized” representations of Vietnam’s recent history.

An active presence on the international art scene, Chung has been featured in a wide range of museum exhibitions and biennials in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the US, including: the Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale (Fukuoka, Japan); the Incheon International Women Artists’ Biennale (Incheon, Korea); Zendai MoMA (Shanghai, China); Centre de Cultura Contemporánia de Barcelona (Barcelona, Spain); and Campbelltown Art Centre (Sydney, Australia). She will be participating in the Singapore Biennale in 2011.
