Tulip Duong

Hanoi / CUC Gallery

Tulip Duong’s (b. 1959, Vietnam) art practice was given a strong boost when the Museum of Ethnography in Hanoi organised her first solo exhibition in 2005. The artist’s passion for art in its sheer creativity and openness, was consolidated through a visit of museums and collections in Europe in 2013, when she experienced not only many works she knew heretofore from reproductions, but also site-specific works, the context of the museums and collections, from the architecture to the museum photographs of Thomas Struth. Tulip Duong proclaimed, “there is no limit for everything in art!”.

Tulip uses Hanoi’s landscapes of urban and rural spaces for her art. She works consistently hard to identify a new type of Vietnamese ethnic form in her artworks. Her art also represents self-expression, evolving with the international style to represent the traditional characteristic of the Vietnamese people who have displayed high levels of resilience, and also an ability to adapt to the cultural transition in Vietnam.

Tulip Duong will be presenting her works CUC Gallery.
