Juei-Hsien Hsu uses mechanical elements as a creative medium. He builds technically complex and conceptually sophisticated “machines” whose motions are activated by the audience and stimulate memories and emotions. Exploring the ways in which sound, images, and new media might be used to extend the language of his work are a new development.
Mr. Hsu graduated in 1986 from the Sculpture Department of the Arts and Crafts Faculty, Fu-Hsing Trade and Art School, and in 1992 from the department of Fine Arts, Chinese Culture University, Taipei. He then studied at the Ecole Supérieur d’Art d’Aix-en-Provence where he earned a Diplome National Supérieur d’Expression Plastique in 1997.
From 1999 to 2002, Mr. Hsu held the position of lecturer in the department of industrial design at Shih-Chien University, Taipei. His work has been exhibited throughout Taiwan, also in France, Germany, UK, Senegal, and Australia.
Mr Hsu’s Wang residency at Location One is supported by the Yageo Tech-Art Award of the ACC (Asian Cultural Council).
