Many 2013/2014.In the video the speech is recorded twice and then the two videos are juxtaposed. One video is a spontaneous monologue and the other one is a transcripted speech of that monologue. 

  

 

 

Su Ling Gyr (UK/CH), born in 1979 has exhibited in Switzerland, Berlin, London, and Stockholm and most recently had her first show in Shanghai. She has also screened her videos at festivals and cinemas in 2014.

In the last years Su has exhibited in Berlin with White Concepts (2009) and a group exhibition, titledGynaeceum, Artment Berlin (2012), her seminal exhibition being in Switzerland, Soroptimist (2001) with her Life-Size Flashing Doll. In Stockholm, she exhibited with drawings in a show in Ostermalm, Linnegatan 41, (2010). She also did event based projects such as her concept for Chinawhite, London (2012) and participated with CREATE BERLIN in Nachtschicht (2012).

Su Ling collaborated with filmmaker Solo Avital on a performance video in Tel Aviv (2011), titled 'Pool Loop' and with writer Edy Poppy on a book, titled 'Jeunette World' (2009) that was previewed in Berlin with White Concepts (2009), as well as a collaboration with Photographer Nick West (Nick & Chloe) and artist Norah Dineen on a video, titled Fashion Bone in Berlin (2013) which was recorded in the old GDR radio station in East Berlin. Her video work is oftentimes collaborative, involving other artists or creatives. Su has also done work that is interactive and technology based. 

What sums up the motivation behind all the work Su Ling Gyr does, is an interest in her ongoing subject matter: she is always searching for new ways to execute her perspectives on it. 

Su Ling's creative background is diverse, having worked as a costume designer for two London based films, and on various consultancies for international brands in London, Paris and NYC. With this, Su Ling's initial work was informative to her future work as an artist. Her experience deeply informing her interdisciplinary approach.
