Lucy Nguyễn-Hunt

(she, her)

Lucy  Nguyễn-Hunt is  an interdisciplinary Vietnamese and Samoan/Cook Islander Australian artist  investigating and coming to terms with her existence in the world.  Namely, this manifests as dismantling preconceived notions of identity through the lens of a camera and her culturally hybrid and queer gaze. Working predominantly in photography and moving image and implicating the body as self as a material form,  Lucy investigates the structures in place with consistently othered outliers to a socially constructed ‘standard’. Regarding her practice as a safe space for licking her own wounds;  vulnerability, self-awareness and authentic representation are at the heart of her work.  Lucy  prioritise s representation and visibility and voicing lived experiences through  a  process of self-negotiation and preservation.
