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 inscription in space and in time. Her biological drawings often combine the precision of scientific sketches with a mythical sense of aesthetic to challenge the audience’s visual sensory on the pleasure of pain. 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 tensionof the artist’s dualistic state of being when under physical endangerment or distress. Angela’s works have been exhibited in the 2nd CAFAM Biennale, 17th Biennale of Sydney, Artists’ Film International 2014/2015, Rossi & Rossi and Saatchi Gallery in London.
