Victoria Fu

Victoria Fu’s artwork reflects on the status of the moving image and conditions of spectatorship in today’s digital age.

The artist writes, “My moving image installations exploit, exaggerate and simulate optical effects of light and space as meditations on sight, perception and image-making. The installations mix photographs, video screens and projected light in an interplay between objects, moving and still images. A rendering of landscapes in which our notions of what is “real” are slippery, the work examines the cultural and psychological spaces of viewership that is “post-cinema”—and the aesthetic formulas that allow the virtual world to alter human experience.”

Harpo Foundation is pleased to provide Ms. Fu with a direct artist grant to assist her production and development of new work.
