Karen-Thao Nguyen La is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer from Vancouver, Canada. She currently resides in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, to explore her diasporic lineage. Her practice often finds itself in the liminal space between hyphenated identity. The direction of her physically immersive research is rooted in the commonplace rituals of the public / private sphere, such as work and leisure. She listens, observes and participates—examining the plurality of the body, activities and objects—based on their socioeconomic, geographic and historic context.
