Phung-Tien Phan is a visual artist who explores contemporary ways of life in a post-migrant and neoliberal society. In her sculptural and cinematic works, she is addressing issues of privilege, consumption, and shifting identity. She lives and works in Essen, Germany.
In Half Moon Phung-Tien Phan mixes home video sequences with diaristic footage and quotations from films and music. The line between filming oneself and being filmed, between being oneself and playing a role, becomes increasingly blurred. Excerpt of Frieze Art Cologne 2019 Critics Guide by Moritz Schepers.
WET Screening is a free online platform for film and video, collectively curated by the members of WET and accompanied by a conversation with the artist in a form of an audio recording. The conversations will form an archive representing a range of voices within contemporary moving image practices. Our goal is to build a community of international artists working with the moving image, in order to support and disseminate their work.
