Pei Chi Wu born in Taiwan, based in Taiwan and the UK.
In a way, her art practice is a smile with tears and weirdly romantic. Wu is a multidisciplinary artist, she delves into matter and images, her art-making encompasses a diverse range of materials and mediums such as moving image, textile, performance and text.
The exploration of memory, human behaviours and quotidian details are central to her practice. Her recent work is driven by homesickness, she starts to look back at her family story and attempts to deconstruct certain unverified personal stories. Living in a foreign country, the culture difference has reflected in her recent works that cause her to rethink the relationship between personal history and written history.
Wu both accepts and embraces confusion and entanglements in her narratives, allowing for fluidity and unpredictability to enable open-endedness while conveying intimate yet alienated moments between illusion and reality. Sometimes, Wu sees herself as a storyteller that does not attempt to provide a cohesive and accessible story.
