Born in 1988, Taiwan, Wu Chia Yun is an artist and filmmaker based in New York. She received an MA degree in Visual Communication from the Royal College of Art (UK, 2016) and an MFA degree in Motion Pictures from the National Taiwan University of Arts (Taiwan, 2018). Her works are a mixture of image and have expanded from film to installation and conceptual art; to explore the materiality of images, she has applied the technique of film narration, mise-en-scène and cinematic language into the experiments in transmedia. In addition to the expansion of images, Wu also makes fiction films. She uses characters and plots to narrate the indescribable life stories and discuss the sense of belonging, freedom, and human condition.
Wu’s first film has been included in The European Independent Film Channel (France, 2015). She has been selected to the Proyector Festival de Videoarte (Spain, 2019, 2022), European Media Art Festival, (Germany, 2020), Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin (France, 2021), Fine Arts Film Festival (USA, 2022), London Short Film Festival (UK, 2022) and more. Her works have been screened at some international institutions, including ICA London, Louvre Museum, Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, BilbaoArte Fundazioa amongst others.
