Angela Su
The Afterlife of Rosy Leavers

Angela Su

Born in Hong Kong

Angela Su received a degree in biochemistry in Canada before pursuing visual arts. Su’s works investigate the perception and imagery of the body, through metamorphosis, hybridity and transformation. Her pseudo-scientific drawings often combine the precision of scientific sketches with a mythical aesthetics, challenging the audience’s visual sensation of the pleasure of pain. Her research-based projects include drawing, video, performative and installation works that focus on the interrelations between our state of being and scientific technology.

In 2019, Su was commissioned by Wellcome Trust to present a commission project in “Contagious Cities: Far Away, Too Close” at Tai Kwun, Hong Kong. She has also participated in museums and institutions internationally, including Academy of Fine Arts Vienna , Austria; CAFA Art Museum, China; National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea; the 17th Biennale of Sydney, Australia; Saatchi Gallery, UK; He Xiangning Art Museum, China; and the 2nd Shenzhen Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism, China. In 2013, she published an artist novel Berty, and in 2017, a science fiction anthology Dark Fluid where she uses sci-fi as a method for social critique. Her work is collected by M+ (Hong Kong) and CAFA Art Museum (China).

Su currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
