YAN Wai Yin (b.1994) works and lives in Hong Kong. Yan excels at the juxtaposition and insertion of literary texts in narratives. Through shifting personal observations and the temporal, emotional distance in different texts, Yan inscribes quotidian fragments of memories lingering in space and objects. Her film “Localized Blindness” (2019) was awarded the Best Experimental Award at the 20th South Taiwan Film Festival, “Tugging Diary” (2020) was awarded at Taiwan Kaohsiung Film Festival and Festival des Cinémas Différents et Expérimentaux de Paris. Recent exhibitions and screenings include: IFFR (Netherlands), EMAF (Germany), Videoex (Switzerland), Image Forum (Japan), EXiS (Korea), and TIVA-ANIMA (Taiwan).
