Probeheads of Resistance & the Heterotopic Mirror: Tiffany Chung and Dinh Q. Lê’s Stratigraphic Cartographies
Mapping the work of two Vietnamese artists educated artists in the United States, Tiffany Chung (b. 1969) and Dinh Q (b. 1968), Professor Gardner examines the ways their work folds across different times, material and subjects. Chung and Q’s oeuvre examines the scars of postcoloniality by interweaving actual historical situations – wars of national liberation, rationing, genocide, enforced migration, deindustrialization and natural disaster – with more virtual and heterotopic encounters, what Chung evocatively defines as “an archaeology project for future remembrance.” After Deleuze and Guattari, Gardner calls this folding line “stratigraphy” and he emphasizes the significance of such lines that move between planes of coexistence as a material strategy for resisting aspects of the present we may which to refuse.
