“The Afterlife of Rosy Leavers” is Angela Su’s first solo exhibition at Blindspot Gallery. The exhibition will showcase the artist’s newest works that include drawing, video, hair embroidery and installation. This is the culmination of Su’s extended research on mental illness and social control, offering a dissection of her own state of mind to explore the im/possibility of autonomy, agency and empathy in one’s daily struggles. The exhibition is a self-reflexive journey that begins with Su’s exploration with hallucination to question the perception of reality, and subsequently how she positions herself in these uncertainties. Interlaced with different key concepts, recurring motifs and historical facts, the journey contains two main intersecting narratives which focus on the inner self and external structures.
