Paj Hoob (Flower Room) #2

Vanghoua Anthony Vue

About

Thousands of Hmong people fled Laos after the Second Indochina War in the 1970s, undertaking a drastic and traumatic migration to many countries, including Australia. Today the Hmong people form a global diaspora connected through familial linkages, global transportation, and new technologies. This enables the Hmong people to rediscover and reimagine who they were in the past, whilst redefining who they are capable of becoming in the present and the future.

This installation draws inspiration from Hmong textile traditions, bringing its designs, patterns, colours and processes into a contemporary expression that speaks of culture’s continuity through its resilience and adaptation to place.

The work has been created by the artist Vanghoua Anthony Vue, in collaboration with young people from Tasmania’s Hmong community.
