Diane Severin Nguyen works with photography, video, and installation. Through material and sculptural experimentations, Nguyen approaches the photographic moment as one of transformation. The artist is particularly interested in exceeding photography as a mode of documentation, and engages with it rather as a set of conditions shaped by desire and speculation. She has exhibited her work internationally, in places like SculptureCenter, The Renaissance Society, the Rockbund Museum, MoMA PS1, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Schinkel Pavilion, Jeu de Paume, the Hammer Museum, and many others. Nguyen is a recent recipient of the 2023 Guggenheim fellowship and lives and works in New York.
