Lives and works in Taipei

Innovative artist Yao Jui-Chung, also a curator, art critic and art historian, experiments with a broad variety of mediums, including installation, performance, photography, video and painting, creating works that are both aesthetically beautiful and conceptually challenging. Often appropriating imagery from the canon of Chinese art history, Yao’s works question and contest Taiwan’s complex political and historical past. Through participatory projects, Yao has also engaged in collective action, using his work to draw attention to present-day social issues surrounding the politics of space and problems resulting from misguided government policies.
