Chi NGUYEN

This August we visited artist Chi Nguyễn at her Greenpoint studio.  During our visit we talk about textile, and the projects she's been working on.

In addition to art, we also chatted about the coming out stories, our hometowns, and Asian queer women living in New York.

Here comes our second episode:

People usually gravitate towards things that look so seamless, but I like to show that this fabric has been through something...I like the flaws.
— CHI NGUYEN

Being an artist is never easy - especially for those come a long way from home. As Asian queers, it takes us more time to break through the conventional concept and stereotype from our countries other than striving for our dreams. 

When we saw Chi, we saw the power of quietness - peaceful but steady.

And we know that coming home is a long journey, but we are never alone.
