Shou-An Chiang

 

Shou-An Chiang is a Taiwanese multi-disciplinary visual artist based in London. Her photography and videos explore the ambiguous concepts of relationships and identity. Chiang's practice and research of the alienation built from the diverse society draw on her own undefined identity experience, as she delves into the philosophic themes of duration, existence, and phenomenology. Chiang also works in the fields of performance and installation and is fascinated with plural and transdisciplinary language that interlaces fine art, technology, and new media.
