Website logo, stating my name, 'Kelly Wu'

Kelly Wu is a queer Chinese-British artist who was born in Chelmsford, Essex. Her parents are from Beijing, China. She has lived in Clacton-on-Sea, Braintree, Colchester, and Paris, France, but today she lives and works in London.  

Her practice combines sculpture, performance, and installation. She fixates on objects: the small, the found, the stolen, and the gifted, and with them she thinks about her past and her parents, arranging her misfortunes in neat order. She gives in to her sorrow and traverses the ether between head and heart, near and far. 

Her work engages themes of family, memory, theft, yearning, love, catharsis, ephemerality, etcetera...
