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. Her work includes film, mixed media and spatial installation focusing on the production and research of fictional film. With the former experience in filmmaking, she has applied the technique of film narration, mise en scène and cinematic language into the creation of visual art. To challenge the philosophy of time-based media art, she has been examining the relationships between material and image, and altering the image and sound of film into installation in real space.

On Freedom
The work is a series of installation that interweaves daily photos with mixed media presenting the conflicting eagerness of freedom from the perspective of family. Through curving and bending images, the boundary between 2D and 3D has been blurred; yet through the media transforming by printing and scanning, the videos have been re-composed frame by frame and in between digital and material which is not only an electronic file but also a physical existence consisting of dust, wrinkle and wate ...

The Moment of Consciousness
The Moment of Consciousness is an on-site installation that is both “in the gallery space, yet absent in the gallery space.” It is both enclosed and extended. Allowing the viewer to penetrate in between and observe the unnoticeable existence in the gallery from different perspectives. It includes the wall, the floor, the warehouse, and pipelines. As we perceive the moment of our existence through the exploration of space, we consciously find ourselves living in the moment, standing right here ...

Moldy Walls
When I worked in some filmmaking crews as an art director before, I set scenes and made props regarding scripts. One day in a new house, the director requested that he wants a moldy wall, while the ridiculous story has affected my creations since then. The work attempt to respond to the essence of film art – the staged scenes and realistic atmosphere – a reflection of the nature of screenwriting – the surreality of reality. The method of “spacing” becomes a debate of existence that is born ou ...
