Wu Chi-Yu (b. 1986) is an artist based in Taipei. Chi-Yu’s work has long been focusing on re-establishing the connections among humans, things, animals, and the ruined world left by technic capitalism. 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.

Wu Chi-Yu was a resident artist at Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten (2014-2015). He had the solo show: “91 Square Meters of Time” (TKG+ Project, Taipei 2017). The exhibitions he once participated include: “The 12th Shanghai Biennale” (Power Station of Art, Shanghai, 2018); “Trans-Justice” (MOCA, Taipei, 2018); Taipei Biennial (Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, 2016). His films have been screened at the Beijing International Short Film Festival (2017); EXiS Festival, Seoul (2017); Arkipel Festival, Jakarta (2016).
