Yen-Yu Tseng will be showing works from her City Doll series Hsinchu 1, 3, 5-22, an alternative history of her hometown.

Yen-Yu Tseng works with old clothes and her own textile technique: wrapping. Before she received an MFA in 2015, her works had already been featured in many international textile art exhibitions. She is the recipient of the 16th Li Chun-Shan Visual Art Award (named after the mentor of Taiwanese contemporary painting) in 2020.

About her time in Winnipeg, she says, “I would like to collect stories about characters who have lived in Winnipeg, from local collective memory and my visitor experience. I will make figure fabric dolls/portraits from local waste textiles and old clothes as part of my City Doll project.”
