Su Misu (b. 1990) currently lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan.

Natural light on 135mm negative, revealing clothes or nudity, no resplendent accessories affixed. Models gaze right through Su’s camera lens with a calm demeanor, as if there is nothing left to manifest. ihategoodbye is more of a “Watashi-Shashin” project: Photo shooting in a relatively casual manner, documenting an authentic lifestyle, nothing pretentious. Nevertheless, these portraits reveal what Su cherishes the most during the execution of her project: mutual respect. Though being dear friends already, Su said that she still tends to prevent any discomfort from happening between her model and herself while shooting photos, which can be an abusive experience.

Intersectionality in gender identities is one crucial topic widely discussed by activists and academics. For Taiwanese artist Su Misu, there is a divine figure that provides the best representation of the notion: Bodhisattva. One can find Bodhisattva as a major motif in culture production throughout art history in Asia. The sexual character of this goddess of mercy is often depicted as neuter, genderless, or variable. Su adopted the renewal of enchantment as her strategy in staged photography, which made this project a modern allegory. Bright neon colors on traditional Taiwanese opera stage elements such as dragons and lotuses, indicate that the portraits at the center would naturally become avatars, the incarnations of the deity.

Su Misu
I am a fake but my heart is true, Part II, 2018
Inkjet Print on Canson Baryta Prestige, 100 x 150cm Each

Su Misu (b. 1990) currently lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan.

“I am a fake, but my heart is true, Part II” is a criticism of the vast objectification of the human body in modern society. The images depict futuristic doll-like mannequins represented by actual living human models, lying in despair on a pile of used cardboard boxes and other worn-out corrugated sheets and recyclable materials. Because anything that exists fades eventually, Su Misu poses a question about exploitation and abandonment.
