HSU Chia-Wei was born in Taichung, and now lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan. He is interested in the forgotten histories of the Cold War in Asia. His works develop a keen sensitivity and perceptibility that weaves together reality and illusion, history and the present by building a circuit of events of people and places off the screen of history. He has been continuously trying to merge the languages of contemporary art and film to develop his works. Meanwhile, he also pays attention on how to negotiate with reality through film creation, fabricating a heterogeneous narrative posited between fiction and reality. Upholding a critical attitude and through the power of film creation, he strives to focus on sites outside museums as a means to achieve the goal of politicizing the practice of film creation.
