Still: The Glamorous Boys of Tang
SU Hui-yu (1976, Taiwan) studied Fine Art at the National Taiwan Normal University and the National Taiwan University of Arts, both in Taipei. Su is mostly interested in the connections between media, images, history, and everyday life. Themes present in his work deal with violence, sleep, the female body, and a general interplay between reality and fantasy. His video works and installations have been shown all over the world and his solo exhibitions, The Fabled Shoots in 2007 and Stilnox Home Video in 2010, were nominated for the Taishin Arts Award. In addition, Su was awarded the Asian Cultural Council Fellowship Award and participated in artist-in-residence programmes in New York, Munich, Los Angeles, and the Czech Republic. In 2017, IFFR dedicated a retrospective to Su’s video works, while his film Super Taboo (2017) had its world premiere in the Tiger Competition for Short Films. Su returned to the Tiger Short Competition in 2021 with The Women’s Revenge. The Cinema of Séance, his first solo exhibition in the Netherlands, could be seen in 1646 Experimental Art Space in The Hague in 2021. For IFFR 2022, Su created the performance Revenge Scenes – in collaboration with Cheng Hsien-Yu.
