Akim Nguyen

Creative Consultations - Presentations - Live Art

My main body of work are not 3D sign installations or graffiti. My main motto is form follows content. I don’t want to stand still and make 3D works, but don’t mind showing works on photos. I hope the organisers trust and understand this."
 
Akim wants to start a debate via the workshop with participants, have fun, conquer oneself, form opinions, correct them, analyse experience and integrate this in participant’s works. The synthesis of my reception of the public space is an interaction between the statoc public space with a given code and the moving body(action), which breaks the code.

The term public space can be extended to media space. Any person that tries to understand art has to face the media visibility, in whatever form. My street art work deals with unfiltered analogue zones of seeing, here (in Manchester) it is about collecting, analysing analogue experience.

Akim works with 3d installation in public spaces.

As part of the NOISE workshop via active engagement, participants experience the urban space with their own bodies, to find answers how we can experience the public space. For example, what is the difference between the perception of an individual and a collective? This will be achieved through actions and interventions in the public space. Want to provoke different views of perceptions. The actions can be captured on film and analysed. Aims are:

  • Improving sensibilities for public space
  • Individual and collective usage
  • Integration of workshop experience in own work
