An Su is a visual artist mainly working with photography, film and text. She was born in a small town surrounded by mountains in southwest China. The transcendental perception of nature with mysterious imagination is constantly dissolved in her works. She explores in the research of nature, feminism, Postmemory and disease, using specific events and sensitive emotions to start collective narration and historical reflection. She graduated from MA photography at the Royal College of Art in 2022, before that, she studied journalism and literature respectively in Nanjing and Taiwan, which influenced her involvement in visual art and poetics.
