Yan Wai Yin (b. 1994, Hong Kong) graduated from School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong in 2016. She lives and works in Hong Kong. On behalf of the Floating Projects Collective, Yan initiated Elemental Dynamite in 2019, a study with series of thematic screenings and technical-oriented experimentations that poses critical questions to the expandability of animation as a practice and a medium.
Yan’s works often depict a bystander perspective to pull away the persona from personal experience. By drifting between her own observation and the temporal, emotional distance between different literary texts, she juxtaposes sentences with her own narratives, thus thrusts to retrieve those quotidian fragments idling within spatial ruptures and daily objects.
Yan primarily works with moving images and installation. Her work has been exhibited in various venues, including H Queen’s, Hong Kong City Hall, Shanghai Power Station of Art, among other locations.
