Transform In Fringe by Charlize Nhung | 2nd Floor Lobby


Charlize Nhung’s sculpture of morphing shapes is an exploration into cultural transformation. Inspired by the image of her grandfather's loom from her childhood in Vietnam, she uses the medium of textile string to wrap, spread and adjoin webs of fibers resulting in a network of bonds. Her haptic and lucid approach often plays a role in shaping her interdisciplinary practice. In this sphere, the artist uses a traditional material as a visual representation of the forgotten landmark. ————————————————————— Charlize-Nhung Nguyễn is a Vietnamese-born Canadian artist whose work focuses on the relationship between design object and its medium.
