YEN Yu-Ting

The Seventh Genre: Habitat/Zoo/National Park

YEN Yu-Ting's practices mainly focus on the dialogue and re-interpretation between the cultural context of ink painting and contemporary life experiences. In her past works, she uses images and texts from news stories as the background, combining her personal experience and fictional situations and attempts to transform and re-encode the plots with the basis of traditional symbols in traditional ink painting. In which she aims to capture the collective restless and disoriented mentality in Taiwan's society, as well as the absurdity and interest that come with it.

She recently yet further investigates the context of writing and framing in ink painting and ponders the possibility to integrate ink painting with contemporary life experiences. She tries to interpret her bizarre observation on the relationship between individuals, collectives and online media through the terms of traditional ink painting.


Yen Yu-Ting was born in Taipei in 1989 and graduated from M.F.A program at Taipei National University of the Arts in 2017. Yen was selected to the Art Taipei MIT section and Ministry of Culture’s overseas Artistin-Residence program.
