Wenqing Yao is an experimental filmmaker and artist based in London. Rooted in the culture in which she grew up, Yao's works incorporate traditional Chinese philosophy into experimental film, with the aim of challenging the conventions of filmmaking methods and placing the audience in a more sincere relationship with films.
Deeply engaging with the topics of post-humanism and mass media, Yao’s works use moving images and installation as mediums to question what human beings are doing.
Her films were officially selected by HiShorts! Film Festival 2021 (China) and the London Short Film Festival 2022 (UK), and she has exhibited with Stanley Arts, Safehouse2, and Ircam Paris.
