Suki Chan is a London based artist and filmmaker. She uses a range of media including installation, moving image, photography and sound to explore our perception of time and place. Her immersive, mesmerizing film works draws the viewer into a cinematic ‘elsewhere’, investigating memory, subjectivity, belief and knowledge systems.
Chan’s film premiere Interval II explores our transient relationship with our built environment through symbolic periods in history. Chan juxtaposes two contrasting types of architecture that mediate our relationship with our surroundings from a cast-iron pier in Northwest England to a roundhouse in Southeast China. Chan uses time-lapse to accentuate the transitory movement of light over the structures, highlighting their physical form within the altered landscape. Shifting from micro to macro, she investigates traces of human presence within the buildings, as well as the social and cultural shifts within the respective societies.
