Yaoyao rides the hyphen as an artist-teacher-creative entrepreneur and collaborative cultural producer. She holds a MA in Fine Art from the University of the Arts London (2020) and a BAS in New Media from the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong (2016). She is currently based in Southern China.

She participated in artist-in-residence projects between jobs and degrees at the Academy of Fine Art in Prague and Tbilisi Free University, Georgia. She was also associated with producing the 68th Berlin International Film Festival-winning feature film An Elephant Sitting Still. In 2021, she collaborated with theatre director, NYU visiting scholar WANG Chong, to produce the documentary of the late director/writer HU Bo.

 

As part of her practice of ‘art at large’, Yaoyao now teaches at Shunde Polytechnic, Guangdong, CHINA, which allows her to continually bring together diverse expertise with comprehensive experience in supporting and delivering practice-based art educational projects for higher vocational college students. Her current aim is to push and blur the boundaries between art, the broader creative industry and vocational education. By networking with creative industry professionals, scholars, social media influencers and independent culture practitioners, Yaoyao created events, artworks, exhibitions, curricula, digital publications and other projects that variously consider bringing interdependence job opportunities from big business to micro-local groups at the intersection of social media operation, live stream business, research and copywriting, visual arts and design to support vocational college students in critical creative cultural production.
