Arlette Quỳnh-Anh Trần assumes many roles—increasingly on the quest to obtain indefinability in her output. She moves fluidly as an artist, academic-researcher, curator, collective member, and catalyst. In her new home based in Saigon, Mài Apartment, we talked about circles, borderless styles and dust phobias.

In Photo Dialogue: a new visual series inviting friends to converse with us through images — ours, formally documented and theirs, informal snapshots. In this series, we exchange images with visual artist Ngô Đình Bảo Châu. We had the opportunity to document her solo show: Towards Realist Socialization / trông thật khác, nhìn thực giống, during her week of install. Curated by Arlette Quỳnh-Anh Trần at Galerie Quynh.
