Sung Tieu: Ghosts In The Machine

Lecture7 June 2022, 19:00Aula, Städelschule, Dürerstraße 10, 60596 Frankfurt am Main

In this talk artist Sung Tieu will dive more generally into her interests surrounding astrology, institutionalised superstition, their socio-political resonance and potential for exploitation. The presentation will focus on one of her most recent installations What is your xy? at Kunstverein Hannover (2021) and will draw connections to previous research interests, such as psychological and sonic warfare.

Working across media, Sung Tieu’s exhibitions meld sculpture, drawing, text, sound and video to investigate the evolving structures and mechanisms of control. Her practice raises questions around equality, belonging and individual sovereignty – often revealing the psychological effects of ideological systems and the politics they engender. Extensive research is set in contrast with an autobiographical query which allows Tieu to simultaneously address the deeply personal as well as the institutionalized structures that frame such individual expression and agency.
