+CV 

 


Wu Chia-Yun (b.1988, Taiwan) received an MA degree in Visual Communication from the Royal College of Art (London) and an MFA degree in Motion Picture from the National Taiwan University of Arts (Taipei). She is an artist and filmmaker based in Taipei, her work is a mixture of image, video, mixed media and installation, focusing on the topics of “human condition” and “the time of image”. Wu explores the possibilities of images with the use of poetic languages, blurring the boundary between narrative and non-narrative. To study the essence of image, she often transforms the property of the materials into her work by craftsmanship; and through examining the relationships between material and image, she reflects her observation towards lifetimes from the perspective of philosophy.

 

Wu has been awarded as Emerging Artist Made in Taiwan by the Ministry of Culture (2017), First Prize of Kaohsiung Awards by the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts (2019) and has had a solo exhibition at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (2019). Her works have also been internationally selected to the Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin (2021), European Media Art Festival (2020), Proyector Festival de Videoarte (2019) and collected by The European Independent Film Channel (2015).
