Visiting Artist Residency:
July 1 – September 26, 2019
Su Hui-Yu is a Taiwanese artist fascinated by the intricate tapestry interwoven by images, media, history, and daily life. In his videos, he explores both mass media’s impact on viewers, and the projection of viewers’ thoughts and desires onto media. Su’s interest in old books, from which he re-reads, revises and appropriates texts for his work, has led him to a new understanding of physicality, existence, and history.
His work has been exhibited at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, MOCA Taipei, Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Casino Luxembourg, Museo Jumex in Mexico City, San Jose Museum of Art, Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, and Power Station of Art in Shanghai. Su has been awarded the Asian Cultural Council (ACC) Fellowship Award and participated in a residency program in New York City in 2009. Su Hui-Yu obtained his M.F.A from Taipei National University of the Arts.
