Hatch Art Project is pleased to present Vietnamese artist Nguyễn Quốc Dũng’s first solo exhibition in Singapore. Through his paintings, the artist examines the human rights of minorities such as migrant workers and transgender people. In particular, through his upcoming exhibition ‘The Lives of Others’, the artist is approaching the lives of the marginalized due to Vietnam’s rapid economic development from a social structural perspective.
The plight of low-wage labourers, migrant and immigrant workers, and social complexities from overpopulation to the lack of private spaces all contribute to the drama of his compositions. The uncertain and precarious situation of the figures he documents, living in cramped rental rooms and neglected neighbourhoods in Vietnam are palettes from which he paints. His art touches on how rapid urbanization and global integration affect the population’s indifference and disregard towards these communities.
