Wu Chi-Yu

 

Wu Chi-Yu is concerned with the varied connections between history, politics, the individual, and the collective in contemporary society. His practice revolves around the moving image, looking for contemporary narratives in lost memory through the reproducing of oral history and myths. He is also involved in different collaboration projects of installation, video installation, and performance, in an attempt to bridge postmodern history and contemporary life. Wu Chi-Yu received a master’s degree in new media art from the Taipei National University of the Arts in 2011. He participated in several residence programs between 2014 and 2015, including at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam, Netherlands; Seoul Art Space Geumcheon, Korea; and Baan Noorg, Ratchaburi, Thailand. He has exhibited in the Taipei Biennial, Taipei, Taiwan (2016); 2nd China Central Academy of Fine Arts Future Exhibition, Beijing, China (2015); and Fest — New Directors/New Films Festival, Espinho, Portugal (2015).
