Su Hui-Yu (b. 1976)
Su Hui-Yu obtained an MFA from Taipei National University of the Arts in 2003, and has remained active in the contemporary art scene ever since. Su is 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. Recently, 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, San Jose Museum of Art in California, Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Casino Luxembourg- forum d'art contemporain and Power Station of Art in Shanghai. In 2017, International Film Festival Rotterdam dedicated a retrospective to Su’s video works, while his video piece Super Taboo had its world premiere in the Tiger Awards Competition for Short Films. Su has been awarded the Asian Cultural Council Fellowship Award and participated in a residency program in New York City in 2009. In 2019, Su wins the 17th Taishin Arts Award- Visual Art Award.
