Truc-Anh is a Vietnamese-French artist who works in a range of media that includes video, painting, sculpture, wood carving and performance. They are all articulated like brances around a central trunk, drawing. Through his work, Truc-Anh encourages viewers to pause and actively engage what he makes visible. Drawing upon a range of references from art history to contemporary culture, the presumed direct relationship between the viewer and the work betrays a tenuous hold. Truc-Anh studied at Ecole Boulle, Ecole Superieure des Arts Appliques, Paris; ECAL, Haute Ecole d’Art et de Design, Lausanne; and La Cambre, Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Visuels, Brussles. He has exhibited in several group exhibitions in Europe, most notably at the Museum CODA, Apeldoorn, the Netherlands; and Galerie Albus Lux, Knokke, Belgium.
