Miss. Liu Jiayu

Born in Liaoning,China 1990

Currently lives and works in Beijing and London


Known for her immersive and evocative media installations, Jiayu Liu is a media artist based in Beijing. She holds an MA from the Royal College of Art.


Living in a world that is dominated by technologies and a world that we usually experience with, through, or is mediated by technology, Jiayu’s work can not only disrupt these and shape them creatively but more importantly, in her artwork technology itself becomes invisible, almost disappears, as she brings to the center the power of nature and human emotions.


Jiayu's artwork often recreates and augments the natural world and focuses on relationships between humans, nature, and the lived environment, exploring human behavior and response. Under the constantly updated technology, using different media, material, and digital technologies, her installations become immersive portals through which one can be transported between the superimposition of real and virtual, physical and digital, and material and immaterial worlds. Her installations enable new communication nodes with audiences using live and static streams of data and digital technologies. The audience's behavioral response and emotional resonance are aroused through spatial collage and displacement, making her creation repeatedly "re-created" by audiences. 



She has exhibited internationally in museums and festivals, including the V&A in London, K11 Art Space, K11 MUSEA in Hong Kong, He Xiangning Museum, Guan Shanyue Museum,  SWCAC in Shenzhen, CAFA Museum, Times Museum, Today Art Museum, Riverside Museum, and UCCA Lab in Beijing, Power Long Museum,  OCAT,  MOCA, UCCA Edge in Shanghai, And The 59th Venice Biennale, London Design Festival, Kinetica Art Fair London, London Fashion Week, Chengdu Biennial,  Wuhan Biennial,  Jinan Biennial,  Beijing Media Art Biennial, and Guangzhou Triennial.


She also has collaborated with many world-known brands: BVLGARI, Burberry, Longines, Lancôme, Polar star and some art commission projects for public spaces work with organizations: WWF,  Green Peace, and invisible dust UK.
