Nguyễn Trinh Thi is a filmmaker and artist. Traversing boundaries between film, documentary, video art, installation, and performance, her practice currently explores the potential of sound and listening, and the multiple relations between the image, sound, and space with ongoing interests in history, memory, ecology, representation, and the unknown. Recent exhibitions include installations at Documenta 15, Kassel (2022); the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Minnesota (2019), the 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Brisbane, Queensland (2019); the 21st Biennale of Sydney (2018), and the 13th Lyon Contemporary Art Biennale (2015). In 2009, Nguyễn founded Hanoi DOCLAB, an independent center for documentary film and moving image in Hanoi.
