Hsu Chia-Wei (b. 1983, Taichung, Taiwan) is interested in the forgotten histories of the Cold War in Asia. His works develop a keen sensitivity that weaves together reality and illusion, history and the present. Through a critical use of film, he constructs mythical narratives that complicate and linger between fiction and reality, while exposing events, people and places that are usually excluded from the screen in the traditional history making. Chia-Wei is the Annual Grand Prize winner of 2017 Taishin Arts Award. Chia-Wei graduated from the Graduate School of Plastic Art, National Taiwan University of Art.
