by Maya Nguyen
Maya Nguyen (b. 1996) is a Vietnamese-Russian artist who works with sound, image, and the body, in natural and constructed environments. Her work excavates the power relations inherent in human interaction and the environments that facilitate these interactions, such as the domestic sphere, the colonial subject, or border zones. She is the assistant poetry editor of Asymptote Journal, holds a BA in Philosophy and Comparative Literature from the University of Chicago, and is an MFA candidate in Sound at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
