Xinyue Liu is a visual artist whose work takes form in film, photography, text, and installation. She is fascinated by the renegotiation of past and present that unfolds when she searches for and handles found objects, lost images and readymade knickknacks. In weaving together fragmented narratives and moving images, Liu’s practice investigates issues of displacement, intimacy and memory.
Liu received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Television and Radio Production from Jilin University, China before moving to Vancouver to pursue her graduate study in Interdisciplinary Studies at Simon Fraser University. Her work is inherently informed by her upbringing and familial relationships. As a recipient of the Elsie Jang Fellowship, Liu’s works have also been presented in various venues such as the Vancouver Chinese Film Festival and Canadian Anthropology Society and American Anthropological Association Conference.
