NAIFEI WU 吳迺菲

Born in Taiwan, 1989. Lives and works in London.

Naifei is an emerging artist, working primarily in video, installation, web projects, and other process-based, post-studio practices. Centering around topics such as translation, mediation, empirical experiences and cognitive models, an inter-personal approach is often employed in her works in the form of playful and open-ended frameworks that invite participation from the public.
