Nguyễn + Transitory is composed of Nguyễn Baly and Tara Transitory. Their work crosses disciplines of sound, performance, and installation. Together, the two attempt to approach sound, synthesis, noise, rhythm, and performance from a less colonial lens.

Their practice also involves efforts to empirically learn more about various Southeast Asian + diaspora queer existences and histories.

Nguyễn + Transitory performs internationally at Siam Museum Bangkok, Lava Film Festival Kraków, Museum of Modern Art Warsaw and SAVVY Contemporay Berlin amongst others. Their immersive site-specific installation sound performance “Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing” (work-in-progress), initially developed at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, was presented at CTM Festival 2019, WORM Rotterdam, Submerge Digital Arts Festival 2019 Bristol and PACT Zollverein Essen. The premiere of “Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing” will take place in September 2019 at Serralves Museum Porto, further shows will be at Ultima Festival Oslo, STUK Lueven and HeK Basel. Currently they also developing the work “Hi Hi Future, Bye Bye” together with Katharina Hauke which will premiere in autumn at silent green Kulturquartier Berlin.

Nguyễn Baly is a non-binary, Vietnamese-German diasporic sound and performance artist who works and lives in Berlin. Baly combines avant-garde art, experimental music and post-colonialism in their work.

Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation, makes work which some consider art, some consider music and some consider trash. Clearly, it never quite fits into neatly demarcated categories. She is trans, nomadic, and an explorer at the intersections of gender, noise, and ritual through sound, performance, and collective trance.

Nguyễn + Transitory member, Tara Transitory, received the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin grant for 2020. She will be a resident for 1 year in Berlin as one of the outstanding artists worldwide.
