Joy Chia-Yu Yeh is a contextual artist, she reconstructs the contexts that she physically encountered, makes the familiar unfamiliar, to rethink her engagement in the world. By deciphering and deconstructing the contexts, then reconstructing the contexts with various materials in non-customary methodology, she creates alternative ways to knowing the world.

Joy has exhibited mainly in the UK and Taiwan for the past few years. She has held an MA from the Royal College of Art, UK and a BFA from the Taipei National University of the Arts, Taiwan; also did the exchange programme at the University of the Arts London.
