The Beheaded Stream
Liang Ting Yu (b. 1994, Taiwan) received his master’s degree in trans-disciplinary arts from Taipei National University of Arts. Liang’s practice focuses on integrating regional investigations and studies with project-based art actions and mixed media art. He examines issues related to historical archives and ethnic relations, and he has recently expanded into exploring archives and local myths and legends. By using motion images, local ghost stories, image production, and writing, he creates artworks that look into relationships between cross-regional fields and arts.
