Born in 1983 in Taichung, Taiwan.
A graduate of the National Taiwan University of Arts, Hsu was appointed as director of Taipei’s Open-Contemporary Art Center in 2011, an art space established over 12 years ago and run by young artists. Hsu’s creative method is a specific kind of “Narrative” — a way of documenting that interferes with the text in reality, by focusing on site specific and peculiar characteristics, such as memory, imagination, or identification. He has been continuously trying to merge the languages of contemporary art and film to originate his works, fabricating a mythical narrative which lingers between fiction and reality. He maintains a critical attitude toward filming, and through the power of film creation, he strives to move art to locations outside museums and to developing his political practice.
His works have been on display in museums and international film festivals, such as Jeu De Paume, The 39th International Film Festival Rotterdam, The 55th Venice Biennial, 2012 Liverpool Biennial, 2012 Taipei Biennial, 8TH Taiwan International Documentary Film Festival, and RENCONTRES INTERNATIONALES PARIS/ BERLIN/ MADRID screened at the Centre Pompidou Paris, Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, and Reina Sofia National Museum Madrid.
