Nung-Hsin Hu (胡農欣) is a Taiwanese-born U.S.-based interdisciplinary artist who interweaves time-based media, installation, performance, and artist’s books in her practice. Her work intends to reveal the invisible status, articulate the unconsciousness, and perform the vulnerability through a poetic and whimsical approach.

Her current projects utilize analog film as the main media, applying light-sensitive, nostalgic, and ephemeral features to address a sense of loss and collective grief in this uncertain era, as well as touching on the subjects of time, memory, and mortality. Hu also combines traditional and direct filmmaking techniques and infused language literacy with optical soundtracks to bring movement and sound components into film installations. Her newly completed artist’s book “Three Suns” is also an analog film-inspired project.

Her recent exhibitions include Incurable Nostalgia (18th Street Arts Center, Los Angeles, 2020), The Hours After (Singapore Art Week, Singapore, 2021), and Future Alchemy (Jakarta Biennale, Jakarta, 2022). Hu has received various grants, including the Jerome Foundation Travel and Study Grant, the National Culture and Arts Foundation of Taiwan-International Exchange Grant, and the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning—Van Lier Fellowship. She has also participated in international residencies including Casa das Caldeiras in São Paulo, the Treasure Hill Artist Village in Taiwan, the Arctic Circle Residency Program in Norway, SHIFT residency at the EFA Project Space in New York, SÍM residency in Iceland, and the 18th Street Arts Center in Los Angeles.
