Luce Nguyễn-Hunt (VN/SĀMOA/RAROTONGA)
Born 1999, Te Whanganui-a-Tara Aotearoa / Wellington, New Zealand
Lives and works Naarm / Melbourne, Australia
Luce Nguyễn-Hunt is an emerging Vietnamese, Sāmoan and Rarotongan artist currently based in Naarm. Their research-based practice examines their place within an intersection of rich and deep cultural histories, queerness and observing intergenerational ties. She uses digitally manipulated moving image, photography, poetics and sound as an embodiment of cultural memory, often preoccupied in dissecting non-linguistic experiences in the face of non- or partial language knowledge.
Luce graduated with First Class Honours in Fine Arts at Monash University in 2022, and have been lucky enough to show at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, The Immigration Museum in partnership with Midsumma Festival, and Somos Art Berlin. They also work as an arts handler and audio visual technician.
