Lives and works in Taipei


A graduate from the Chinese Culture University (bachelor of fine arts, 1999), Chu Shu-Hsien joined the Hantoo Art Group in 2003, with which he exhibits regularly. 


Chu places emphasis on scenarios in life that are difficult to describe, hard to define but are also impossible to neglect. These scenarios are like crevices in real world; they only exist temporally, and although the realms contained in these crevices are minute, they are sufficient enough to spark internal impacts in people. His work focuses on small quotidian events that he expresses in a minimalist narrative with an exquisite realistic panorama, combined with music, to produce a poem of images and sounds.


Chu Shu-Hsien’s works consist mainly of 3D computer animations since 2001, such as his first short film, A Foggy Day (2007), shown at the Taiwan International Animation Festival - Short Subjects Films/Fear, 2007. His works are frequently selected in group exhibitions held by public art organizations, including the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts (2011), Taipei Fine Arts Museum (2009), and Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts (2007). In 2012, his animation Tapir-Go-Around was presented in Local to Local — Taipei in Busan, Hantoo Art Group Exhibition in Busan, Korea.
