Phuong Ngo

Pattern Exchange

About this activity

Phuong Ngo creates artworks that explore the ways people understand history, memory and place. Phuong is very interested in how modern Vietnam has been shaped and changed by interactions with other peoples and cultures. He is also interested in the power of language and words.

For APT10 Kids, Phuong has explored these ideas, with a focus on the manufacture and use of cement tiles in Vietnam. In Phuong's Pattern Exchange 2021 activity, children can create their own geometric tile pattern using collage sheets.
