Lananh Lê is an artist and writer, based in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam, graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Ethnicity Studies in 2015. Currently, Lananh is working on projects revolving around the themes of oral history, mythology and public cultures of memory. She is compelled to create “mythical ecologies,” otherworldly realms where she can investigate the relationship between mythology, ecological formations, and how diverse cultures express their relationship with the universe. For Lananh, artmaking is a psychological healing tool and her own meditative process, highly linked to ancestral worship and the search for spiritual symmetry in a world full of chaos.
