b. 1981, Hanoi, Vietnam/Lives and works in Hanoi
Aptly nicknamed Mami, a playful slang word for hustler, Tuấn Mami constantly explores new mediums and methods of expression. He is known for his daring, and increasingly meditative experimentations with installation, video, performance and conceptual art, which in recent years have taken the form of site-specific interventions into both private and public places. He founded MAC-Hanoi, a Mobile Art Center in 2012 and co-founded Nha San Collective Art Space, Hanoi in 2013, where he serves as Creative Director. He has recently completed a residency at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam and presented solo exhibitions at the Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, Ho Chi Minh City; Framer Framed, Rotterdam; Heritage Space, Hanoi; and the Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery, Chicago.
