Sheng-Hung SHIU



1987  b. Kaohsiung , Taiwan

2014  Graduated form “Tainan National University of Arts- Plastic Art”, M.F.A




In contemporary life, people have grown accustomed to reading information and constructing knowledge through innumerous physical and virtual interfaces. In his work, Sheng-Hung Shiu has examined the complex, fluid relationship between memory and its vessels, and explores the methods of reading image and painting that are mutually referencing and influencing. By doing so, the artist has created installations by mixing painting, photography and documents. Throughout the process, Shiu has also been intrigued by the historical context of the landscape, places and family memory, and consequently, started gathering more information and incorporated his experience into his work. Although his motivation originated from self-exploration, his work has employed an objective and coolheaded approach, as if he had adopted the perspective of a stranger to create and observe the scenes.


Shiu has been collecting “Ehagaki” (postcards issued in Taiwan during the period of Japanese rule). The images on these postcards are often scenic spots and daily scenes of different places, and one major type is colored photographs. The illustrated Ehagaki images, on the other hand, range from masterpieces of renowned painters in art history to drawings by unknown artists. In Shiu’s solo exhibition, Sanchuan State (2015), the Ehagaki with images of paintings were shown as prints, and the Ehagaki with photographic images were re-created by the artist, who reproduced the images with the same colors to observe the similarities and differences between the past and the present. Through this sampling method, Shiu has juxtaposed images scattered in time and put together an image of Taiwan with fragmented scenes. By comparing the ‘souvenirs’ left by people in the past with the present landscape, Shiu has unfolded an alternative way to know this land by examining the changes and disappearance of local memory.


The Images Left Behind (2018) was Shiu’s invitation to his audience, who participated in the artist’s journey that aimed to explore the fluidity of memory and its crucial role in shaping our life and environment. In this exhibition, Shiu created an ambiguous yet affective experience that connected audience in a closer way.


Objects filled with memory and a sense of history could be viewed as items exchangeable with capital, or could be conveniently preserved as images. Blinded by land development and personal greed and desire, does anyone really care about “memory,” “mementoes” and “monuments” as resistance slogans at critical moments? From individuals to the larger environment we inhabit, people have always been faced with the unknown future and sudden disappearances in life. Each one of us has a different stance and attitude towards memory. These material objects that carry different implications from respective historical contexts could be assets, treasures, souvenirs or dispensable. Therefore, the artist has felt the need to re-examine the relationship between memory, capital and material exchange.


Shiu has been applying his artistic concept to painting as well as other media. In 2012, he held his first large solo exhibition at Hong Gah Museum, and in recent years, he has held solo exhibitions or participated in group exhibitions in Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan and Basel in Switzerland. His works have been exhibited in major exhibitions, including TOKYO FRONTLINE (2011), Taiwan Biennial by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (2012), Kaohsiung Awards (2014), Taipei Arts Awards (2015), Art Central and VOLTA 14 (2018).
