Kvet Nguyen (Hoa Nguyen Thi) was born in 1995 to Vietnamese migrants in Slovakia. This clash of two different realities is the base for every thinking process and eventually dominant subject in her works.
She recently graduated from her bachelor studies at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia at the department of Photography and New Media. She continues her Masters with the first semester-long study at the Koninklijke Academie van beeldende Kunsten (Royal Academy of Fine Arts) in the Hague and then plans to return home.
The starting point for her long-lasting motivation was based on Stuart Hall’s post-colonial theory. Here, for the first time, she understands the many angles of history that are yet to be unveiled. Continuing in the line with migration, she rediscovers notions of herself and her parents’ unfixed nationality as well as the hybrid sense of the state of post-migration belonging.
