Yu-Sheng Chiu (b.1999) is a Taiwanese lens-based women artist living in Ottawa, Canada. Her work focuses on her journey navigating through the alienation that she experiences as a Southeast Asian woman assimilating to the West alone throughout her adolescent years, and the way she sees solitude as an idea of comfort in a contemporary social construct that explores our understanding of physical and spiritual distance. She uses lens-based imagery, including self-portrait, to examine the topics regarding human forms, self, gender, anxiety, sexuality, and homeliness being a state of mind.
