-Alias* An Su
An Su is a visual artist mainly working with photography, film and text. She was born in a small town surrounded by mountains in southwest China. The transcendental perception of nature with mysterious imagination is constantly dissolved in her works. She explores in the research of nature, feminism, Postmemory and disease, using specific events and sensitive emotions to start collective narration and historical reflection. She is currently studying in MA photography at the Royal College of Art. Before that, she studied journalism and literature respectively in Nanjing and Taiwan, which influenced her involvement in visual art and poetics. Her work has always been drawn to poems that contain, within meditative movements, a hint of narrative and a textured visual myth.
An Su's work has been published on Chip Foto-Video Digital, and exhibited in A Fragile of China (London.2021), Gwangju International Art Fair (Korea.2020), Photo London 2021, Chongqing Biennial of Young Artists(China. 2021). In 2022, she self-published her photography books “Seven Mountains, Four Rivers, Three Lakes. Suns and Moons” and “ A Letter-I haven’t seen the ocean utill my 19”.
