Critical about the art system and its conventions Lan Hungh has chosen a very open discipline: performance art. No role-playing here. His physical presence and his perception of actuality and the local and global contexts where he lives are the subject itself. His actions – a mix of nonsense and intelligibility based on a universal and natural grammar and inspired by daily life – engage an exchange at eye level with the public. Like a contemporary Diogenes looking for the honest man Lan Hungh praises nature, purity and freedom. Can art change the world? Regardless of the response: it is important to formulate thought-provoking questions. (by Tiny Domingos)
I am a mix-media artist who works with performance, video, music and installation, through which I demonstrates a passion for psychology and body works, often subjected to definition changes by language and structures based actions. In the process of research and development, I often involve myself in architecture and environmental context, and my works show a commitment to an erotism and body-politic in conceptualizing of art.
