Capsule 11: Sung Tieu. Zugzwang

31 January 2020 00:00 - 21 June 2020 00:00

Capsule 11 presents a new multi-media installation by the German/Vietnamese artist Sung Tieu (b. 1987 in Hai Duong, Vietnam) forming her largest and most expansive work to date.

Entitled Zugzwang this immersive sound and sculptural installation investigates the psychological power dynamics of administrative law and the politics of its subsequent design. Tieu’s installation critically interrogates the aesthetics and acoustics that demarcate modern forms of bureaucratic circulation and regulation. Comprising sound, text prints, sculptures, drawings, mementos and objets trouvés, the new body of work constitutes a way of thinking through the artist’s changing political and social surroundings.
