Artist Statement

My project “Miu” follows my journey back to Hanoi, Vietnam after living in Vancouver for five years. As a young person heavily influenced by American media, I used to believe that the glamorous images I saw in movies and music were the epitome of a desirable life. However, during my time in Canada, I found myself feeling detached from my hometown and didn’t have high expectations for my return. In fact, I had developed my own reverse racism towards Vietnam, thinking that the outside world had more to offer.

I noticed that this mentality was shared by many people who had lived in Vietnam. While they still held their city dear, they too yearned for the excitement and opportunities of the outside world. I wanted to share my perspective with these people – that of a semi-foreigner who had forgotten many things about their own culture yet found the beauty of Vietnam.

I want to showcase the everyday aspects of life that are often overlooked or taken for granted and turn them into something fun and unique that only the people of Vietnam with their special mentality can create.
