Angela Su

Angela SU received a degree in biochemistry in Canada before pursuing visual arts. By adopting existing scientific belief systems, Angela creates works that prompt us to contemplate our own being, our inscrip- tion in space and in time. Her biological drawings combine the precision of scientific sketches with a mythical sense of aesthetic to challenge our position and perception of the ecological and evolutionary system. Not only has Angela been interested in exploring the perception and imagery of the body, through her performance-based works such as “One-Woman-Apartment” (2008) and “The Hartford Girl and Other Stories” (2012), she continuously investigate the tension of the artist’s dualistic state of being when under physical endangerment or distress.
