Born and raised in France in a Vietnamese family, Hoa Dung Clerget had a career in the banking industry before dedicating herself to painting from 2016. She earned a BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins in 2016 and an MA in Painting from Royal College of Art in 2021. In 2019, she created ‘La Galerie Libre’, an agent with multiple identities: artist or collective of artists, curator and physical gallery in movement.

Clerget’s multicultural background can be witnessed in her transforming objects, French and Vietnamese family traditions are embodied in the domestic objects she uses to construct her artistic language. Despite the simplicity of such objects: Clerget refers back to the history of art and to the idea of “minimalism”. These objects found within the home create a story which bridges people from far off places and explores the hybrid environment of diasporic families.
