Director Biography - Yongchu SUH

Yongchu Suh creates essay films using animation techniques as a basis. Her work, which is both rough and intricate like a tangled and quilted tapestry, gives voice to the human experiences of a nondeterministic and often contradictory life, being conscious of the socio-political ethics that exist at individual and collective levels. She moves freely between 16mm film, video, and digital media to create moving images and utilizes a variety of animation techniques including paint on glass, sand art, scratch boards, charcoal, collage and décollage. In the exhibition stage, she creates multi-screen film installations, interactive media art, live performances with mobile transmissions, and theatrical media projections that depart from conventional modes of production and presentation. Suh's recent interests lie in the performativity and sensory experiences of animators who are the creators (and laborers) in the production of animated films. Within this context, she explores the manner in which animations are produced and ultimately displayed to unearth the trace of the animator's performative practice and creative process.
Her works have been internationally invited or awarded in festivals and art shows, such as Hammer Museum, Seoul Museum of Art, Platform-L Contemporary Art Center, Korean Film Archive, Hiroshima International Animation Festival, Fantoche International Animation Film Festival, Seoul International Cartoon and Animation Festival and Seoul International New Media Festival, etc.
Suh has received her PhD degree in Animation Theory from Chung-Ang University, MFA degree in Experimental Animation & Integrated Media from California Institute of the Arts, and BFA degree (Graduated with Honors) in Animation from School of Visual Arts in New York. She is currently teaching at Korea National University of Arts.
