statement

Lap-Xuan lives and works in HCMC. Underpinning both her art and personal ethic is a belief in the intangible and heartfelt connections between people. Lap-Xuan’s reality is not objective or static but one of flux, complexity and ever-shifting sensibility. The overarching preoccupation of her art is with liminality – the tacit ambiguity of the experience of selfhood, as it operates in both mind and environment. Her work challenges the boundaries of artistic documentation and can be alternatively thought of as a social experiment juggling variables of individual voices. Each of her works invites the viewer to participate in a sensory experience, to write his own part and in turn, open up new and intimate dialogues. Her current body of work encompasses sculpture, drawing, installation, performance and time-based media.
