Momo Yuntong Wu, is an interdisciplinary artist, who currently lives and works in San Francisco bay area and Los Angeles. She obtained her master's degree in fine art from San Francisco Art Institute in 2019. Her work has been exhibited and collected in China and United States.
My works investigate the network of ideas that shape our mutual understandings towards our physicality, the metaphysical, psychological mechanisms, philosophical enquiries, and our deep historical relations with this planet and the cosmos. This profound interconnection and intricacies of our existence and humanity mirror the same complexities that occur around us; from the vastness of the cosmos, our socio-cultural structures, down to the most microscopic of entities. These are the ideas that equally drive and propel my curiosity to explore and expand my convictions towards materiality, methodology, and approach in my practice.
Most of my work favorably utilize the element of chance, channeling my sensibility to critically engage and consider the critical aspect of time (deep time) and space (internal and external); the forces that push and pull, dynamisms that entwine and separate within the context of dualism. I believe, that these dichotomies (the yin and yang) that define the symbiosis of all living things remain as the foundational discourse conveyed within my process-oriented work. These are my interpretations and representations of available knowledge systems that distinguish and emphasize the notion of wholeness; being one with the cosmos, knowing our place in it, and embracing all its mysteries. These similarities and interconnections transformed my perception towards life; intimate dialogues that record my diverse emotions and awareness, a personalized focus of inquest through art.
