Moi Tran is an artist of Vietnamese/Chinese heritage, who is currently exploring sound and emotional politics through performance and unconventional archival methods. Her practice involves building relationships with communities who live in the spaces of the margins. Her work is a celebration of the lives and experiences of those communities and advocates for the voice of the diaspora to examine how voice shape’s identity.
During her time at The Art House, Tran will invite local diaspora communities in Wakefield to contribute sounds that usually fall outside of mainstream archives to help reshape how future histories are told, performed and experienced.
