Ishu HAN

(Born in Shanghai, 1987. Lives and works in Tokyo)


Ishu Han is one of the most promising young artists. From his own point of view, he addresses questions regarding the complex relationship between individual and society and the confusion caused by it. With sincerity sometimes humor, Han speaks to viewers through multimedia: Installation, photography, paintings, and video, in which he uses his own body or daily items that we use.

He has participated in numerous group exhibitions, “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) / Japan Society, New York (2016); “Sights and Sounds: Highlights”, Jewish Museum, New York (2016). He joined in Artist-in-residence programs in New York in 2015. He also had solo exhibition recently, “The Drifting Thinker”, MoCA Pavilion, Shanghai in 2017.
