“When I was in America, I never really fit in, and kept harbouring this romanticised image of Vietnam. When I went back, it was completely different from my memory, but somehow deep down I knew it’s where I’m supposed to be. I accept that I am a product of two worlds.”

Dinh Q. Lê (1968-2024) is considered one of Vietnam's most significant contemporary artists. His practice challenges how our memories are recalled and how society archives the evidence of human suffering. Le's work elucidates his commitment to the artistic process as a means of excavating history and the uncovering and revealing of alternate ideas of loss and redemption.
