About

susan pui san lok premieres a new body of work titled RoCH Fans & Legends, commissioned by QUAD and the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CfCCA), in partnership with Animate Projects and the University of Salford.

Featuring single and multi-channel moving image works for gallery and online, RoCH draws on fan uploads of numerous adaptations of The Condor Trilogy (1957-61), a classic ‘new wuxia’ epic by Louis Cha aka Jin Yong, to explore some of its recurring tropes and translations – its fantasies, landscapes and archetypes, as well as its 'poor' and 'pidgin' iterations, in diasporic popular culture. 

susan pui san lok's work ranges across installation, moving image, sound, performance and text, evolving out of interests in notions of nostalgia and aspiration, place and migration, translation and diaspora. She graduated from the University of Leeds in 1994 (BA Fine Art) and 1996 (MA Feminism and the Visual Arts), going on to complete a PhD with Aavaa (the African and Asian VIsual Artists Archive) at the University of East London in 2004.
