Su Yu (b. 1986, Beijing, China) is an artist who uses painting (from cellphone photos) and language (writing and conversations) to locate and expand his sense of belonging as a non-white, non-straight, foreign subject in the current global reality. Su’s current work generates a support system within his immediate circle of friends and community, finding love and sanity that are vital to survival in face of systemic and structural violence. The paintings and audio works question the power of looking and listening, challenging the (in)attention paid to either actions.
