In September 2022 Huis Marseille will present Hug of a swan, the first-ever museum exhibition of the French-Vietnamese artist Nhu Xuan Hua (1989, Paris), a remarkable new talent. Hua made her name as a photographer for magazines such as Vogue, The Wall Street Journal, Dazed Beauty, DANSK, and TIME Magazine and worked on commissions for big fashion brands like Kenzo, Maison Margiela, Dior, and Levi’s. Nevertheless, fashion photography is only one of her talents. The exhibition Hug of a swan highlights the diversity of her artistic work, which also takes the form of installations and autonomous work inspired by family photos. The exhibition shows that these categories cannot be detached from one another; the inspiration for all of Hua’s creations arises out of personal and shared memories.
To go with the exhibition, a series of three key rings were produced with images of Nhu Xuan Hua on them, now available in our webshop.
The image (excluding ring) measures 4 x 3 cm.
