HSU
Chia-Wei

HSU Chia-Wei's creative method adheres

to a specific type of “Narrative” -- a way of documenting which interferes with the text in reality, by focusing on site-specific and peculiar characteristics, such as memory, imagination, or identification. 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 beyond museums and to developing his political practice.

His works have been on display in museums and international film festivals, such as Jeu De Paume, The 39th International Film Festival Rotterdam, The 55th Venice Biennial, 2012 Liverpool Biennial, 2012 Taipei Biennial, 8th Taiwan International Documentary Film Festival, and Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/ Madrid at the Centre Pompidou Paris, Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, and Reina Sofia National Museum Madrid.
