THE BOAT PEOPLE

Nov 5, 2021 – Jan 16, 2022

THE JACK W. AND SALLY D. EICHELBERGER FOUNDATION VIDEO GALLERY

Extracting and re-working narratives via history and supernaturalism is an essential part of Nguyen’s video works and sculptures where fact and fiction are both held accountable. Set in an unspecified future at the precarious edge of humanity’s possible extinction, The Boat People follows a group of children led by a strong-willed and resourceful little girl, who travel the seas and collect stories of a world they never knew through objects that survived through time.
