A Nocturnal Artist Salon

Su Hui-Yu (b.1976, based in Taipei) is especially fascinated by the intricate tapestry interwoven by images, media, history, and daily life. In his videos, Su explores both mass media’s impact on viewers, and the projection of viewers’ thoughts and desires onto the media. Su draws from his experiences of being surrounded by cinema, TV culture, advertisement, state apparatuses and terrorism that affect relations between self and other, the body, projection of desires, and illusion and reality.

There after Here: Performing a Verb #1 a fetish verb presents an artist’s salon with a collaborative workshop by Su Hui-Yu and El Insulto, followed by a screening party showing selected video works by Su alongside DJ Pablo Escalón's performance. The workshop focuses on eroticism and fetishism to open up the context of artistic field research behind his practice. By looking at a certain type of pornographic material that had been the major gratifier for collective desire the workshop discusses the contextual transformation of cult films, b-movies and pornos and looks at how ideologies shape the image towards a rethinking of bodily restrictions and fictions.
