Tuan Andrew Nguyen on Baseball and Wood Carving

Describing three iterations of “Enemy’s Enemy: Monument to a Monument,” his baseball-bat sculpture that was produced in collaboration with an artisan in Huế, Tuan Andrew Nguyen comments on the Vietnamese tradition of wood carving and reflects on the expansionist military symbolism of American baseball. He describes the sculpture in detail—it is made from Northern White Ash wood and was produced by Hillerich & Bradsby—and reveals the significance of Huế; it is where the car in which Thích Quảng Đức drove to the site of his fateful protest is now on public display.
