Freehold for SEA Focus presents four new portraits by Tammy Nguyen. The images expand on her work inspired by Forest City, a man-made, plant covered, tax-free Malaysian island located in the Singapore Strait between Malaysia and Singapore. Nguyen visited the island in 2019 where a salesperson lauded the sustainable city as a wonderful and luxurious place to raise kids, receive great medicare care, and retire as there was “no climate change” in this utopia. After the trip, Nguyen began to imagine Forest City as an aspirational and utopian nation. Her first body of work about this debuted in the Summer of 2020 at her solo show at Smack Mellon in Brooklyn, NY.
