Vicky Do’s first solo exhibition poses a matrix of complex relations and historical phenomenon through a perspicuous title - 'From Now on' Since 2014, Do has conducted long-term ethnographical research on the life of both marginalized Vietnamese and those who are integrated into the local community in Hong Kong. She employs a distinct filmic vocabulary to create socio-political narratives on refugee issues.
Do (or Vi, in Vietnamese), born in Saigon, is a media artist focusing on both still and moving images. She works with stories and images as a form of historic preservation, archival, and investigation. Her interest is in the politics of urban planning, national territory and their relationship with the human flow, aka, exodus. Do has translated for Saigon-based samizdat publishing house, including monographs about Sino-Vietnamese relationship, Shooting an Elephant (George Orwell), Politics and the English Language (George Orwell). Neither a communist nor an anarchist, she tolerates both to a certain extent.
Do was awarded Master of Fine Arts from the School of Creative Media, the City University of Hong Kong in 2016. She is currently working as a filmmaker and researcher.
