Yu's practice is focused on the peculiarities of material and process—in particular, resin, beeswax and concrete have constantly reappeared in her renditions of the body, which often quote details from Greco-Roman sculptures. The video in the back documents the artist lugging a rock up a hill on the east coast of Taiwan.

In late June, the four finalists for the Hugo Boss Asia Art Award 2017 were announced.
