Lu Wei 
October – December 2023

Lu Wei is a visual artist and curator in Taipei, Taiwan. In 2023, she graduated with a master’s degree in Fine Arts at Taipei National University of the Arts (TNUA).

Lu’s previous works have included ink painting, writing, paper-cutting installations, and curating exhibitions. Her artworks develop the idea of “Yin writing”, from its origin in calligraphy and painting, by referencing multicultural symbols of women. By means of appropriation and collaging images, the works respond to women’s personal experiences of their bodies and subvert the intrinsic meaning of these symbols. From using a brush to write out the feminine body and its being-subject as questions to be aware of, to then developing the technique of self-expression, when it comes to art-making, “calligraphy” isn’t merely a medium as it involves both words and images.

The artist’s co-curation in Taitung Art Museum was nominated for the 22nd Taishin Art Award. Receiving a grant from the Ministry of Culture, Lu will extend this plan to have an artist residency at 18th Street Arts Center. She also got the ‘curator’s incubator program @museums’ (National Culture and Arts Foundation, Taiwan, 2021) grant and curated the exhibition at MOCA Taipei in August 2023. She has also participated in numerous group exhibitions including SOKA Art (Tainan, Taiwan, 2021), Mezzo Art (Tainan, Taiwan, 2021), Taipei Artist Village (Taipei, Taiwan, 2020), AKI Gallery (Taipei, Taiwan, 2020). The Art Bank of the Ministry of Culture has collected her works.
