Ying Yi Wu

Ying Yi is a visual artist and experience designer with scenographic approaches. With a social and cultural orientated mindset, She create works in the field of visual art and performance art. Working vigorously with scenographic approaches for instance moving ‘bodies’ and all the senses, her research project is often expanded toward spatial embodiment and choreography of desire of performative spaces within the social/cultural context.

In her perception, the world is a constant movement between what is present and what is implied but absent. She constantly negotiates and anticipates the relationship between the presence and the absence by taking on an unconventional perspective of healing rituals. She collects and creates visual languages and cultures by playing with the botanical materials that nature provides. She finds her source of inspiration in nature, in Chinese mythology, and in the human body.

Ying Yi has roots in China and graduated from Master of Arts in Fine Art and Design - Scenography at HKU(Hogeschool voor de kunsten Utrecht) in 2018. She also has a background in Choreography and Landscape design.

Ying Yi looks forward to connecting her creative practices with the social dimension of public well-being and collective healing.
