Loan Nguyen

Météo et Phénomènes Naturels (2007-2010)

Every day disturbing new reports about the changing climate arrive through the media. Glaciers are melting, deserts spreading, water shortages lead to political conflicts. The result, Loan Nguyen tells us, is a constant state of agitation and anxiety. Her own anxiety was the starting point for a series in which she attributed divine powers to herself, to influence the world for the better. What she shows us is of course impossible, but yet a striking and poetic translation of the feeling that came over her thanks to our incapacity to fundamentally deal climate problems.
