The fantastical creations of Tiffany Chung are inspired by her enchantment with urban eccentricity. Her images, whether through photography, sculpture, video, or carefully wrought drawings, are colorful controlled dramatizations of the visual landscape she endures in her hometown of Ho Chi Minh City. Drawn to the process of transformation, not only in the physical destruction and ready re-construction of the city, but also the psychological realm of Vietnam’s youth, Chung’s fictive scenarios etch out multi-layered narratives where the psychosis of Vietnam’s contemporary culture – its reveling in foreign trend, its consumer delight in material goods, its near amnesiac knowledge of its own social history – is playfully provoked.
