Rain Wu

Rain is a Taiwanese artist and architect based in London. Her work is conceptually-driven and materialises in different forms and scales from drawing, sculpture, food performance, essay film to architectural installation. She works with the temporality of perishable materials to instigate discussions around our manifold relationships with nature. Following the geographic, political, cosmological and microbial traces of living materials, her work investigates the interconnection between the consumption of food, digestion of cultures, charting of lands and recalling the myths. She graduated from the Royal College of Art and The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. Her artwork has been exhibited in Sharjah Biennial, Taipei Biennial, The Palestinian Museum, London Design Biennale, Istanbul Design Biennial, Lisbon Architecture Triennale, The Shape of the Circle in the Dream of the Fish; she was one of the Designers in Residence at the Design Museum (London) in 2016, an artist in residence at Jan van Eyck Academie (NL) 2018-9, and she is currently an associate lecturer at University of the Arts London and Goldsmiths University.
