the work of london-based, berlin-born vietnamese artist sung tieu often concerns itself with the close inspection of processes of cultural evolution. tieu shot the video for the song "corralito" on a trip with friends to the banks of the lăng cô lagoon in central vietnam. in it we see two figures subtly communicating with a landscape into which, for unknown reasons, they don't seem to fit especially comfortably. another scene taking place in the jungle of the bạch mã national park, whose lush, overgrown surface disguises an underground tunnel 1400 meters above sea level, functions simultaneously to both connect and divide.
