Tiffany Chung is internationally noted for her exquisite cartographic drawings and installations that examine conflict, migration, displacement, urban progress and transformation in relation to history and cultural memory. Conducting intensive studies on the impacts of geographical shifts and imposed political borders on different groups of human populations, Chung’s work excavates layers of history, re-writes chronicles of places, and creates interventions into the spatial and political narratives produced through statecraft. Her ongoing comparative study of forced migration through the current Syrian humanitarian crisis and the post-1975 Vietnamese mass exodus unpacks asylum policies and refugee experiences, providing insights into the constant shifts in international asylum policy making.
