Becky Sui Zhen Freeman is a Chinese-Malaysian Australian artist, musician and creative producer working across audio, visual and interactive mediums. She lives and works on unceded Wurundjeri land. In her project Sui Zhen, loss is examined on multiple levels, from the death of loved ones to the societal tendency to disappear within the 1’s and 0’s of modern life's tech-driven rush.
From the pastel dystopia of the Secretly Susan era’s music videos to Linda, a ghostly alter-ego in the Losing, Linda LP, Becky’s surreal and staged landscapes situate her unique take on pop within its own uncanny terrain. Becky’s most recent release is a collaboration with Chinese-Australian guzheng player and composer Mindy Meng Wang 王萌. Extending on Becky’s exploration of loss, this project focuses on identity flux, transformation and life’s many cycles.
Becky is also a regular monthly host on NTS Radio and the Sound and Music Supervisor for Art Processors. For SXSW 2024 Becky will present a long form piece called 'Sleepless', a testament of emotional liberation and resilience in the face of life's hardships.
