Collecting the faces and stories of individuals unbeknown to the artist, Su Guosong transcribes the narratives of strangers through sculptural and photographic means. Titled Déjà vu, in this series Guosong seeks to capture his subjects in a way that enables viewers to establish a greater connection and understanding of the individual. Sculpture and photography play a key role here.
Indeed, the sculptures are a manifestation of the subjects themselves, expressively relaying the values and unique qualities that inform their identity and place in this world. Exploring the possibility of transferring individuals’ contemporary emotions to physical objects, this series intends to introduce the stories of strangers to a wide and diverse audience.
