Nung-Hsin Hu is a Taiwanese born visual artist and a museum worker. As an interdisciplinary artist, Hu’s practice interweaves video, performance, sculpture and installation. She intends to reveal the invisible status, articulate the unconsciousness, and perform the vulnerability through her practice. She often develops the concept through the lenses of psychology and physiology to reflect her investigation, suspicion, and confrontation with her surrounding environment and phenomena. Her current projects utilize analogue film and projectors combining traditional and direct film-making to address a sense of loss and to archive the ephemeral.
Nung-Hsin has worked as an administrator at the Queens Museum in New York in managing and adult education programs for seven years. Nung-Hsin has exhibited and screened in over 7 countries with the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in New York, Videoformes Festival in France, Museum of Modern Art in Buenos Aires, and Oil Street Art Space in Hong Kong. She has received multiple grants, awards and fellowships over the years like the Jerome Foundation Travel and Study Grant, the National Culture and Arts Foundation of Taiwan’s International Exchange fellowship,and the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning’s Van Lier Fellowship. She has also participated in international residencies at the Casa das Caldeiras in São Paulo, the Lichtenberg Studios in Berlin, the Arctic Circle Residency Program in Norway, SHIFT residency at EFA project space in New York, and a SÍM residency in Iceland.
