Hong Dam

Hong Dam is a contemporary Vietnamese artist born during the Vietnam War.

Hong's work is a journey of self discovery rooted in her extraordinary childhood experiences as an eight year old 'Vietnamese Boat Refugee’. Hong's exploration of displacement through art has come after a career as a digital artist in film. Her emotive, dream-like images has been exhibited galleries and museums such as Turner Contemporary and British Museum.

Sympathy for the Dandelion (Journeys Festival International, Portsmouth, 2018)

Over a cup of chai and cakes at Portsmouth Guildhall, I shared my stories as a child boat refugee among a group of diverse multi-cultural audience. Their curiosity and interest had made me realised the power of words as a medium to express and documenting difficult and delicate stories, such as the journeys made by refugee and asylum seekers.
