Shuyu Wen is an artist, currently living in London.
Wenshuyu’s work tries to fill in the gaps in modern memory by being aware of the times, capturing the novelty and vitality of the world’s “blind spots,” interfering with the properties of materials, and examining the potential of semantic concepts.
Wenshuyu’s work frequently experiments with material properties to investigate the potential of semantic concepts. As a result, she creates informational illusions in the form of montages while conveying the feeling of being “misunderstood.” She makes connections between’second-hand information’ and the experience of communality by frequently using information from the real world or the internet. The visual experience in Wen Shuyu’s artworks is a poetic ‘inversion,’ and the work itself is an inversion of the real world, with the two interacting with each other. The metaphor, through reflection and production, allows the observer to think deeply in an interesting and humorous way.
