Trong G. Nguyen’s work, Library, is the entire text of individual chapters of books written word for word on grains of rice. His re-interpretation of the everyday is an ongoing theme, although Nguyen is in no way interested in being categorized into a singular artist package. As well as being the editor at Artslant, his endeavors also include being a contestant on Bravo’s reality show, Work of Art: The Next Great Artist.
