Liu Yi Biography

Liu Yi was born in 1990 in Ningbo, China. She graduated from the China Academy of Fine Arts School of Intermedia Art with Bachelor's degree and the China Academy of Fine Arts with Master's degree in 2012 and 2016, respectively. Currently she lives in Hangzhou. 'Early Chinese art films and experimental animation' is her primary research direction. Her video works include Origin of Species, Chaos Theory, A Travel Inward, Into The Void, A Crow Has Been Calling for a Whole Day etc. She deploys various mediums through animation, multimedia as well as space installation to reflect her daily living experience and discovers more possibilities in a space resonating with the subject of her works. Audiences are allowed to unearth a differentiated parallel world through her eclectic works. In 2017, A Crow Has Been Calling for a Whole Day was selected and showcased in Holland Animation Film Festival (HAFF), and received the award of 'Special Recommendation' of Hua International Short Film Festival afterwards. Recently, Liu Yi was invited to participate the SeMa Nanji Residency Project which is hosted by Seoul Museum of Art in Seoul in 2018. Video work Chaos Theory has been collected by White Rabbit, Contemporary Chinese Art Collection.
