Mẹ Việt Nam ơi, Chúng Con Vẫn Còn đây (Oh Mother Vietnam, We Are Still Here)
The project Mẹ Việt Nam ơi, Chúng Con Vẫn Còn đây will examine the history of the Vietnamese diaspora in relation to the Houston and Gulf Coast region where many refugees settled after the Vietnam War. The project will emphasize the resilience of this marginalized community through the artist’s journeys as he visits sites in Seabrook, Texas, old and new Chinatowns, Village apartments, and his family’s homes throughout Houston. With support from The Idea Fund, Harris’s research will culminate in a mixed-media sculptural installation.
