Liu Yu

Born in 1985. Employing a variety of mediums such as video, installation, and texts, Yu Liu’s gradually develop a series of field studies of documentary nature as a kind of working methodology in relation to her artistic practice. How human visions the world, how attributes of spaces change, and how things are constantly being defined in a system-these all contribute to giving an account on the progression of humanity. A series of works are later created with a research focus on less visible communities marginalized by structural societal factors. The existence of these communities often reflects the intricacies of its contemporary society, and, furthermore, offers a sample of a specific historical moment with regard to a grander context-a boundary-breaking reexamination that helps disrupt strictly defined scientific methodologies and the science institution with which we are all too familiar.

Yu Liu has held solo exhibitions at Hong-gah Museum, Kuandu Museum of Fine Art, her works are as well as part of art projects and group exhibitions at domestic art museums and galleries, Power Station of Art, Cattle Depot Artist Village, Arko Art Center, and Tokyo Wonder Site. Liu has participated in residencies Los Angeles and Indonesia. Liu currently lives and works in Taipei.
