YU Mei Yee

Yu Mei Yee (Mayyu) falls in love with observation and exploration. She spends a lot of time finding different interesting stories in our life even if it is tiny things. The mysteries in the world have a significant impact on her creation. Yu does not work with one particular media. She believes each thing and each story has its own form. To her, a complete project has to be coherent both on-site and in the audience’s mind, which will enable the audience to go beyond our expectation. Yu tries to uncover the possibilities from different techniques and materials in order to express her feelings for nature and life. At the same time, she would like to give these materials a new emotion and even a new life. Under the influence of communication design, her works tend to stay simple and interactive. A simple form is a symbol to show the experience in life and also an attitude for a good lifestyle.

余美儀喜愛探索,喜愛親密性的遊走不同的觀景,探究生活和發掘身邊的故事。神秘的世界給予她無窮的創作力。 她相信所有事物相貌都是獨一無二的。因此,她勇於以不同的方式、不同的物料訴說屬於它們自己的故事,令觀眾重新注視它們的存在並相互交流。在零碎,不起眼的物件中再找回它們的力量、情感。 另外,余美儀受傳意設計的影響, 簡單的設計元素和有趣的互動方式已成為她創作的音符。

Dream Maze

2018

Installation with light bulbs and tracing paper

650 × 500 × 190 cm

We tend to erect a barrier that hinders our ability when we communicate. The hidden gap with varying distances will be revealed along with the deeper understanding between people. We immediately overcome that barrier that we build to keep ourselves separate when we understand on a deep level that we are all really one.

Imagination

2018

Book design with paper

15 × 21 cm

Dream is free just like a bird flying in the sky. Dream is impossible just like a fish flying in the sky.
Dream is mighty that giving power to support your life.
Dream is endless that you have never made it come truth.
No matter if your dream can turn it into reality, it is still beautiful like a sculpture.

Lenticular Image

2018

Screen printing on paper

Set of 9: 8 × 12 cm each

How do form and color play trick on our eyes? Is it the truth of what we think we see? Line, form and color are given a mysterious visual effect. These geometric symbols are an emotion and even have a life. The repetition of simple forms and colors is relatively a form to show an experience of life and also an attitude of the lifestyle.

Flowing

Ink on Xuan paper

61 × 122 cm

The fluidity of ink is the melody of nature.

Fish and I

2018

Seal and ink painting

21 × 25 cm

Maybe because of my surname “Yu”, I am interested in keeping pet fish in an aquarium. One of my favourite gold fish is black in color and it passed away. The two seals serve as a metaphor of the spiritual connection between my goldfish and I were then separated by two different worlds.
