Angela Su is a Hong Kong-based artist. Her video The Magnificent Levitation Act of Lauren O (2022) tells the story of Lauren O, a mysterious circus performer drawn to levitation practices. It tracks O from being an anarchist vaudeville performer to her involvement with the anti-Vietnam War protesters who attempted to levitate the Pentagon in 1967, linking the perils of flight to explorations of the recesses of the mind.
