Who is SIFU SUN?

SIFU SUN (°1992, Mesa, United States) is an artist who works in a variety of media. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, SIFU  finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humour that echoes our own vulnerabilities. The artist also considers movement as a metaphor for the ever-seeking individual who experiences a continuous loss.

Her artworks isolate the movements of humans and/or objects. By doing so, new sequences are created which reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and sound. By applying abstraction, she creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. By questioning the concept of movement, she absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. This personal follow-up and revival of a past tradition is important as an act of meditation. SIFU is currently based in Baltimore, MD.
