HSU CHIA-WEI

BIOGRAPHY

Was born in 1983 in Taichung, Taiwan, live and work in Taipei, Taiwan. Hsu is interested in the forgotten histories of the Cold War in Asia. His works develop a keen sensitivity that weaves together reality and illusion, history and the present by building a circuit of events in the hors-champ of people and places off the screen of history.He has been continuously trying to merge the languages of contemporary art and film to originate his works, in concern of how to step into reality through film creation, fabricating a mythical narrative which lingers between fiction and reality. He maintains a critical attitude toward filming, and through the power of film creation, he strives to move art to locations outside museums and to developing his political practice. His artworks had been presented in many exhibitions in museums, biennials and film festivals.
