    Crating the World2019Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Museums of world culture have seldom engaged in self-conscious examination of how their collections were constituted. What were the logistics for transporting these artifacts and how did this material culture become a source for knowledge production in the West? In short, how did the world come to Europe? 

    Crating the World, a project by artist Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyễn, brings together artistic research with essays by leading scholars to examine the historical and ideological constructions of material culture through collecting and photographic practices. Expanding on Nguyễn’s traveling exhibition Black Atlas, originally hosted in 2016 by the Museum of Ethnography in Stockholm, Sweden, this book deploys rare and previously unpublished archival material as testimony to the silenced histories of exploitation on which the institution is built.

    Three Ecologies Diffracted: Intersectionality for Ecological Caring2019In: Proceedings of the 8th Bi-Annual Nordic Design Research Society Conference - Who Cares? 2-4th of June 2019 Finland, Espoo, Finland, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay commemorates the 30th anniversary of the publication of Félix Guattari’s The Three Ecologies. It does so by proposing a ‘diffractive’ reading of the book, suggesting latent potential in each of the overlapping “ecologies” that conformed the ecosophysketched by Guattari. 

    There are mainly two aspects of The Three Ecologies addressed in this essay. Firstly, the understanding of the general frame of the interrelation of the three ecologies as an “intersectional” approach. Secondly, the understanding of this form of intersectionality as a possible platform to acknowledge other-than-human ‘intersections’. Through the essay I exemplify with one of my own design projects to help situating the claims and the questions raised. Finally, I propose a multimodal explorative framework of the three ecologies to explicitly articulate human and other-than-human beings inter and intra-relatedness.

    Wild Poethics: Exploring relational and embodied practices in urban-making2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Nature is not something separated from the city. With this in mind, this research emerges from the act of urban gardening, staging space for naturecultures that reinforce a direct relation to an urban nature. Alternate agencies can motivate ecological mindsets in urban approaches, bypass the hegemonic and paralysing attitude of the Anthropocene and render a more profound relation with the spatial environment. This catalyses a potential in embodied methodologies to generate vibrant materialist relations in urban-making.   The research is positioned with a two-fold challenge; urban-making and naturecultures. The aim is to reorientate methodologies in urban-making to approach relational space matters, and promote ecological poethics relevant for practice, research and education. Three thresholds of engagement structure the exploration: the embodied, the relational and the situated. Alongside explorative practices are built up cartographies of theoretical neighbourhoods that provide alternate knowledge generation on individual, shared and collective levels. Experimental embodied interventions are grounded in artistic research through choreographical approaches using Butoh, Body Weather and swarm-behaviour practices. These approaches are set in a voyage-metaphor to a fictional Island of Encounters reaching four destinations. Each encounter unravels a particular perspective into relational and embodied practice: Alba (body/curiosity), Agora (fiction/performance), Clinamen (atmosphere/imagination), and Plūris (metaphor/swarming). A methodological choreography which corresponds with the theoretical cartographies, reveals and opens up for an urban-making founded in situated knowledges to generate a corporeal poethics – poetic, politic, and ethical. As the activated practice unfolds, interventions are supported by their theoretical neighbourhoods nested in feminist spatial practice, vibrant relationscapes, worlding, affective atmospheres, imagination, spatial-temporal in-betweeness and assemblage-thinking. Accompanying each destination are five film essay(s), each pertaining to the particular artistic interventions in the research. Using corporeal imagination and re-enactment modes of enquiry such as thinking with paper modelled texts, creating fictocriticisms with clouds, using dynamic biomimesis, and mimicking swarms, generates an enlivened relation with naturecultures that gestures the body into becoming a reflective and profound membrane with space. By encountering and immersing the body in a space/time construct, a critical materiality practice emerges that can infuse urban-making, render the body a more refined medium and reactivate architectural thinking and making.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay reflects my process in the making of a final body of work.

    In chapter one I investigate and describe two mental disorders commonly associated with women, Hysteria and Borderline, and compare them to the material and the use of pearls. Also giving some background on how mental patients have been treated and to the Swedish psychiatric care.

    Chapter two is a further discussion on the theme mind/body, offering the reader some insight on how I approach the making.

    Chapter three is what came after

    Abstract [en]

    My work is a tribute to the disintegration of built environments, and the chaos and disturbance that it brings into the idea of what a city should look like.

    An ode to the ruins that are witnesses to destructive social and economic systems and that tell the stories of the life that once inhabited them.

    A comment and critique on humanities way of ruining everything: world that we live in and our self; a destructive behaviour that we refuse to admit we have, and desperately try to hide. We polish the façades and fake our appearance in order to keep the illusion.

    I am discussing the concept of ruin romanticism, comparing the garden ruins of the eighteenth century to the urban exploration of abandoned places of modern society, the fascination for what once was, but are no more and the different feelings these places might arouse.

    I describe how I through experiments with dying, deconstructed screen printing and distressing, manipulate fabrics to create an illusion of brick walls. And how I through experiments with display, sound and light explore solutions for creating the dystopic atmosphere of abandoned places in a textile installation.

    My biggest inspiration is the inevitable downfallof the urban landscape and I am romanticising the imperfections and the flaws. I take what is understood as ugly by the rules of aesthetics, make it beautiful, and put it on a pedestal.
