Shuyu Wen is an artist, currently living in London.
My work attempts to bridge the cracks in contemporary memory by capturing the novelty and vitality of the world’s ‘blind spots’ through an awareness of the times. I play with the limits of the medium and the way in which space is used in my work. Because of this, what I do is assemble information in a linear narrative with a sense of ‘being misunderstood’. My usual technique is to take ‘second-hand information’ from the internet or the real world and transform it into metaphors through reflection and invention, in a light-hearted, playful tone that makes the viewer think deeply.
