Syu Jia-Jhen was born in Changhua, Taiwan in 1986. She received his BFA at National Taiwan University of Arts, and his MFA at Tainan National University of the Arts.
Syu was trained in and has developed his practice on the field of sculpture. He expresses no particular inclination towards a specific direction or topic for investigation, but makes work in response to different readings, life experiences, or ideas derived from the unveiling of various projects. Syu’s works in 2015 involve making molds and recreating bases of monuments from the Japanese Colonization Period. This body of work examines the entangled relationship between the history of sculpture and colonization memorials. Syu is currently conducting a photographic portraiture project and a project about scented sculptures.
