Lananh Lê is an artist and writer, based in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. After having graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity in 2015, Lananh worked on the intersection between arts and activism with Jeff Chang, Roberta Uno and other artists from ArtChangeUS and Ford Foundation's Future Aesthetics. Currently, Lananh is working on projects revolving around the themes of oral history, mythology and public cultures of memory. For Lananh, artmaking is a psychological healing tool and her own meditative process, highly linked to ancestral worship and the search for spiritual order in a world full of chaos.
