Over ten years, Mylyn Nguyen has developed several solo exhibitions for the Gallery that have whimsically explored childhood curiosities. In 2017 she installed paper koi fish beneath people's feet in Something Else is Alive, presented by The Curators' Department, at Customs House Sydney. This followed on from her inclusion in Installation Contemporary in 2015, a curated component of Sydney Contemporary, where she made a site-specific installation of paper moth-filled habitats underfoot. Nguyen has exhibited internationally twice with Brenda May Gallery/MAY SPACE at Art Stage Singapore, taking a solo installation titled Bombus in 2014, which was composed of 1,000 handcrafted bees.
