SAMMLUNG VERBUND dedicated the first individual exhibition in Austria to artist Loan Nguyen. Under the title "Loan Nguyen - The Principle of Sensitivity", 21 of the artist's works of art were on display at the "Vertical Gallery".
Loan Nguyen lives in Switzerland. Her photographs are located at the intersection between the themes of performance and spaces/places. Although the artist personally appears in her photographs, the act of performance alone does not represent the central statement of the photographic image, but rather it is always integrated in a chosen place. When Loan Nguyen positions herself in a place or a "non-place", her presence remains one of sensitive restraint; she does not wish to fundamentally change the spaces, but rather meditatively approach them with gestures and poses.
