About Vanghoua Anthony Vue

Vanghoua Anthony Vue is a Hmong Australian artist based in Brisbane and Cairns. Vanghoua Anthony harnesses the frictions and tensions of cultural difference from his transcultural Hmong Australian experience to develop work that offers more inclusive, diverse and hybrid tropes of belonging. His work often involves everyday materials, objects and processes based on his upbringing in Cairns, and reflects the resourcefulness of family members and the influence of Hmong artistic traditions. Such work is playful, recognisable and excessively ornamental, and often includes humour and satire to blur the lines and definitions that reinforce Othering.

Vanghoua Anthony embraces the potential of repurposing private and historical archives, together with Hmong oral stories and collective memories, to reinterpret and retell past narratives of Hmong experiences of war and migration, which have been largely overlooked and erased. His practice creates transcultural spaces for viewing, art-making and social interaction within and outside of traditional art exhibiting spaces – often working with the wider public and Hmong community members in Australia and elsewhere.
