Truong Cong Tung

  • Truong Cong Tung produces work that can be located amongst an aesthetic realm outside of reason or sense. Deliberately more intuitive, his video and installation based practice eschews obvious “subjects” and is more readily about the universe of spirituality, shamanism, and ghosts. His installations could be seen as mediums to approach these fields in our contemporary moment, and much of his work examines how faith and belief are posited in diametric opposition to more secular urbanism. At the same time, his practice is inherently performative, and in foregrounding embodied movement through his video and accompanying object-based works, Truong also considers how our bodies act as sites through which the rational and sensate, as well as the intellectual and spiritual, come into communion with one another.
