Meng-Yu Yan 颜梦钰

Meng-Yu Yan 颜梦钰 is a cross-disciplinary artist working with photography, time-based media, and installation. Their practice is mesmerised by mirroring and reflection, investigating photographic origins through the Claude Glass, black mirrors, and scrying practices. A queer Australian-Chinese artist, their practice disrupts the binary, sitting comfortably in liminal spaces. Yan’s solo exhibition occulere debuted at Dominik Mersch Gallery in 2017. In 2019 Yan was awarded the Ross Steele Scholarship to fund their residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. Yan completed their Master of Fine Arts, funded by the Australian Government RTP Scholarship, at UNSW Art & Design in 2020. Their research explored queer spectrality and cultural haunting through experimental photography. Currently their practice is concerned with occult methodologies including spirit photography, divination, performative haunting, and astrology.
