CACHER

CACHER

Thy TRAN

Publisher: NB

Vietnamese artist Thy Tran’s ‘Cacher’, taken between 2015 and 2017, is a photographic representation of Tran’s struggles within her own homosexual relationship. Cacher (French for ‘to hide’) takes its title from Roland Barthes’ 1977 ‘A Lover’s Discourse’ (“I want you to know that I am hiding something from you.”).

“Tran’s work serves to remove its subjects at the same time as paradoxically making them explicit; in CACHER, her practice reconfigures the intimate in a language that is uninhibited. […] Obscuring the faces of both herself and her lover, Tran’s images explore the more intimate and obscure details of a relationship, from mundane visits to a supermarket, to the pile of clothes casually thrown on the chair from the night before.”
