About Cat Nguyen
Graduated from Lasalle College Of The Arts in Interior Architecture, Cat Nguyen has been living and working at Singapore for the past 6 years before moving back to Hochiminh city. The journey gained her valuable opportunities to collaborate in cross-disciplined projects, where she developed her interest in Visual art as well as using paper as storytelling medium.
Inspired by the possibility of paper material, Nguyên is self taught in pop-up and paper mechanism. This diverse approach moves her further in the field of architecture. Her latest collaboration with various artists in Saigon explores a new way of using pop-up to transform space into pages as an exhibition archive and help bringing the artwork to the audience.
Out of office hours, she addresses herself as a "karung guni” (Singlish term for hoarder). She can be found in strange place, collecting weird stuff and listening to strange people stories.
