Yu-Chen Chiu Originally from Taipei, Taiwan, Yu-Chen Chiu is a photographer and new media artist currently residing in New York City.
Primarily, Yu-Chen’s work looks at themes of displacement and longing so often associated with the culturally unfamiliar, through the context of a trans-cultural environment. Often viewed through an outsider's prospective, Yu-Chen uses landscape and cityscape as her subject to investigate the subject matter.
Yu-Chen’s artwork has been exhibited and screened worldwide, such as at the Chelsea Art Museum, the South Street Seaport Museum, and the Sony Wonder Lab Museum in New York City, USA; Musee du Louvre Paris, France; VIDEOFORMES in Clermont-Ferrand, and Reportage Photo Festival in East Sydney, Australia. She is the recipient for New Creation Jury Award of VIDEOFORMES in France, the winner for 2015 EYEEM Photo Awards (The Traveller Category), 2013 B+W Magazine Single Image Winner, two silvers for Paris PX3, the finalist of Reportage Photo Festival in East Australia, and the honorable mention for IPA (International Photography Awards), Julia Margaret Cameron Award.
