Ishu Han

Ishu Han (Shanghai, b. 1987) is a Tokyo-based multimedia artist who addresses the complex relationship between the individual and society. With sincerity and sometimes humor, Han uses his own body and everyday items in his work, which ranges from installation to photography, paintings, and video. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions, including “Asia Anarchy Alliance,” Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts (Taiwan, 2014); “Whose game is it?”, Royal College of Art Gallery, London (2015); “In the Wake - Japanese Photographers Respond to 3/11,” Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2015) and Japan Society, New York (2016); and “Sights and Sounds: Highlights,” Jewish Museum, New York (2016). He also exhibited his solo show, “The Drifting Thinker,” at the MoCA Pavilion, Shanghai (2017).

In 2014, Ishu Han received an Asian Cultural Council Fellowship to conduct research on contemporary art, meet artists and curators, and participate in Residency Unlimited and International Studio & Curatorial Program artist residency programs in New York. He currently lives and works in Tokyo.
