BIOGRAPHY ARTIST
Richard STREITMATTER-TRAN (b. 1972, Bien Hoa, Vietnam) is an artist living and working in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He received his degree in the Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM) at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. His solo and collaborative work has been exhibited internatonally including Kandada Art Space in Tokyo, 10 Chancery Lane Gallery in Hong Kong, Art Space Hue in Korea, the 4th Guangzhou Triennale (2011), the Singapore Biennale (2008/2006), Ke Center for Contemporary Art in Shanghai (2008), Singapore Art Museum (SAM), Eslite Gallery in Taiwan, 52nd Venice Biennale (2007), Shenzhen and Hong Kong Bicity Biennale (2007), Thermocline of Art: New Asian Waves at ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany, Asia Art Now at Arario Beijing, 1st Pocheon Asian Art Festival, Gwangju Biennale (2004), the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin, Chula Art Center in Bangkok, the Asiatopia Performance Art Festival, and Art Tech Media 06 in Barcelona. Otther exhibitions included The Singapore Art Museum/Centre Pompidou video exhibition at SAM and The Asia Triennial in Manchester . He was an arts correspondent for the Madrid-based magazine Art.Es and and Ho Chi Minh City editor for Contemporary and has published in several books, catalogs and periodicals. In 2005 he received the Martell Contemporary Asian Art Research Grant from the Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong for his year-long research project, Mediating the Mekong. He was Teaching Assistant at Harvard University (2000-2004), conducted media arts research at the MIT Media Lab (2000) and a visiting lecturer at the Ho Chi Minh Fine Arts University in 2003. He was an advisor to the Para/Site Curatorial Programme in Hong Kong and the San Art Artist Residency program in Ho Chi Minh City. He is currently Senior Lecturer at RMIT International University Vietnam. Upon relocating to Vietnam in 2003, he helped form ProjectOne, a Ho Chi Minh City-based performance art group now defunct. Two years later he became a founding member of Mogas Station, a group of international creators (artists and architects) based in Ho Chi Minh City, working to promote and present contemporary art in Vietnam. Its members came together in 2005 to create Ạart, the very first artist initiated bilingual contemporary arts magazine in Vietnam launched at the Singapore Biennale 2006. Their second major work, Rokovoko, premiered at the 52nd Venice Biennale as an official collateral event with Migration Addicts project. For the Singapore Biennale 2008, he collaborated with Burmese artist Chaw Ei Thein to create September Sweetness, an life-sized pagoda constructed entirely from 6 tons of sugar that slowly eroded throughout the life of the exhibition. As co-curator he developed The Mekong exhibition with Russell Storer of the Queensland Art Gallery for the 6th Asia Pacific Triennale (APT6) in 2009. In 2010, he established DIA/PROJECTS, a contemporary art experiment and studio space in Ho Chi Minh City. Working with collaborator Le Tuong Vi under the persona, VILE/ RATS, they form projects emerging from artistic research and speculative investigations into the fault lines of science, philosophy and art. Other projects have included collaborations with CIANT (Prague), The Asia Art Archive (Hong Kong), The Japan Foundation and The Japan Society. Since its inception, dia/projects hosted three researchersin-residence from Bangkok ,Manila, Montreal and Seoul. While his practice historically has included performance and new media, his focus is is material and is largely working in sculpture and drawing.

MATERIAL TURN
I’ve chosen the title of this exhibition, Material Turn, for a number of reasons. Over the past several years I’ve found my arts practice shift from conceptual and issue-based works towards a studio-based exploration in craft, material and science. I’ve realigned my studio for the experimentation in sculpture, ceramics, drawing and other forms of creative production with long and deep histories at the expense of my training, which is primarily media art and performance. I’ve also been conducting research over the last years in the history and philosophy of science and have been intrigued by the parallels between the history of science and the history of art. How the distinction between Isaac Newton’s scientific works in physics did not lay far from his pseudo-scientific work in alchemy. Or how Da Vinci’s artistic production did not remain far from his preoccupations with the design of war machines. I feel that my practice so far has been a manifestation of primarily my education, that is, the contemporary art values of concept over craft. We’ve seen the rise of the factory and contract-based production in the world’s most pre-eminent artists. Critics and writers have proclaimed the death of the individual artist studio. Modes of artistic production have been explained in term of film (read: Baurriaud’s “Post-Production) and in terms of negation, “The Art of Not-Making.” Over a decade ago as an art student, I eschewed the workshop for the discursive, enrolling in theory courses heavy on analysis and argument. I still very much enjoy these conversations but I’ve rarely been felt compelled to make something from them. I’ve been disappointed in terms of my own encounters with the spectacle of media art where the technology has become the driving question over the intent. Much of my experience lacked tangibility, or, materiality. What some forecast as the next new school of philosophical thought is the movement sometimes referred to as the Speculative Realists. These new thinkers inherit a legacy of Heidegger and Deleuze, almost separated by two generations with interlocutors such as Manuel De Landa who traces deep histories in geological time. I recently saw a chart on “artistic colors through time” and the amazing thing was the colors correlated directly to our human knowledge in the sciences, notably the p hysics of light and the understanding of chemistry. The rise of the brilliant cadmiums from the centuries of ochres. On this chart, listed Paleolithic man with only four colors at his disposal: Red Earth, Yellow Earth, Chalk White and Carbon Black. In other words, dirt. And from dirt came the most amazing work of a species that would soon spawn it’s own geologic era, the Anthropocene. We’ve irreversibly changed the material reality and in some ways forever altered the idea of the natural. Embedded in the strata of the earth is deep time and the history of the sum of human creative output. It is from this idea, both historically and substantially that I come to this exhibition. The Material Turn reflects the shift in my production, from the ideas that inform it (science , philosophy, deep time, art history) and the substance I’ve chosen to work with (charcoal, clay, and food). I’ve had to start anew, relying on my own hands and abilities in a studio environment to create the work rather than having contracted production (which I’ve so often done in the past). The exhibition space at Art Space Hue has for a short time become a direct extension of my studio in Vietnam. Replicating the same process, pace and production for what I hope will mark a significant point in my trajectory as an artist.
