Chang-Ching Su

Chang-Ching Su (b. Taipei, Taiwan, based in Chicago) is a political research-based artist. He creates contradictions to draw out the overlooked power dynamics that underlie contemporary life and are rooted in politics. Born from the photographer's contemplation and curiosity: chasing nuances, light and shadow, values and gradations, and the world's skin feel and depth, he works with photography, video, sound, languages, and found objects. Su underlines the context and raises social, political, and individual questions in his research, manifesting them as time-based media in conceptually layered installations. Instead of harsh criticism and cynicism, Chang-Ching favors paradoxical playfulness with humor in his work to draw attention to the failings of the system while offering some relief for our frustrations. He holds a BA in Political Science from National Taiwan University and is pursuing his MFA degree at School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
