Aptly nicknamed ‘Mami’, a playful slang word for ‘hustler’, Mami is constantly exploring new mediums and methods of expression. Tuan Mami burst into the international art scene for his daring, and increasingly meditative experimentations with installation, video, performance and conceptual art.In recent years, he has begun exploring an interdisciplinary body of work, both in private and public places. His works are often site-specific and are re-constructional in concept, dealing with questions about life, meaning and social interactions between people, re-constructing situations that engage with both people or objects from particular realities.
