Vanghoua Anthony Vue - Cov Chaw Cog Tseg: The Places Left Behind

Fri 06 Nov - Mon 07 Dec

Vanghoua Anthony Vue is a multidisciplinary visual artist engaged in issues of cultural and national identity, historical trauma, and remembering.

The works in this exhibition explore the Hmong refugee and immigration experience in Australia and Thailand. In 2020, Vue travelled across Thailand to visit Hmong refugee crossing points along the Mekong River and sites of previous official and unofficial refugee camps, detention centres, and transition centres from the late 1970s to the mid-2000s. Many Hmong refugees were held at these sites for many years prior to their immigration to third countries, acceptance in Thailand, or forced repatriation back to Laos. Since their closures, these sites have been largely abandoned, forgotten, or transformed to fit new purposes.

Against amnesia and neglect, Vue attempts to capture the remnants of Hmong presence and the turmoil buried at these places. Although only temporary residences, these places are still fondly considered as ‘home’ by those who can still remember their experiences. This includes members of the artist’s own family and other Hmong Australians who have since made Far North Queensland home for nearly three decades.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
