Clare Chun-yu Liu in conversation with Beccy Kennedy-Schtyk.

Clare Chun-yu Liu is a UK-based Taiwanese artist filmmaker and researcher. Clare is interested in reviewing history in relation to diasporic experience and postcolonial thinking. In her practice, she explores oral history and lived experience in the form of fiction and nonfiction to challenge the grand narratives. Clare holds a practice-based fine art PhD from Manchester School of Art. Funded by the Vice-Chancellor Scholarship, her doctoral research reinterprets English chinoiserie from a postcolonial and personal/Taiwanese perspective through fiction filmmaking.

Clare has presented papers at conferences, including at Central Saint Martins, SOAS, University College London and Paul Mellon Centre/Yale University. Her films have been screened/exhibited internationally, including at the ICA London, Raven Row London, Oxford University, New Art Exchange Nottingham, EXiS Seoul, Image Forum Festival Japan, Kasseler Dokfest, Taipei International Video Art Exhibition, Goethe Institut Lisbon and Mingsheng Art Museum Beijing. Her work is in VIDEOTAGE Media Art Collection in Hong Kong.
