Yao Yi Wang graduated from the Department of Communication of National Chung Cheng University and received his MFA degree in 2019 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, USA. He has continued to participate in the film industry since 2010 and has been involved in the film production of more than hundreds of films, including feature-length films, short films, music videos, and advertisements.
Working with experimental modes in film and cinematic installation, Wang’s personal practice articulates the impact of several global historical moments during the Cold War as well as the repetitive cycles of history. He particularly focuses on the diaspora after 1949. By illustrating how human beings survived in the ideological state apparatus, namely the “homogenous and empty time” after the perish of the large structure, he explores how the current Taiwanese ideology be shaped by the historical trauma that has been transferred to the present time.
Wang experiments being the combination of creator and subject in his film projects. By employing cases from field research and himself as the carrier to fabricate both the fictional and non-fictional elements, Wang presents multiple interpretations of the same historic moment from distinctively individual memories in order to explore the possibility of untold truths.
