Yu Fang Chi is a Taiwan-born, Melbourne-based artist working within textile, silversmithing, sculpture, and spacial installation. In her practice, Chi explores the processes of weaving and the position of human body. Grappling with contemporary issues such as environment, migration, emotional cognition, time’s flowing passage and more explorations of landscape and remoteness, Chi’s work uses processes of repetition, ephemerality and the interplay of light and shadow to open up discussions around contemporary society's pressing topics.

Through various methods of exploring line and form – via traditional craft techniques, wire, and textile installation, as well the use of immersive experience – Chi challenges the way weaving to operate and be presented. Subsequently her work becomes experiential not only in its physicality but also through a range of conceptual connections. Her installation has been part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE and DUE WEST FESTIVAL. In 2019, she received Career Development Grants form Australia Council for the Arts and International Cultural Exchange Grants from Taiwan National Culture and Arts Foundation. Chi has undertaken artist in residencies in Australia, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Taipei. 

Chi gained a doctorate from RMIT University and received Diana Morgan Gold & Silversmithing Prize in 2018. She has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally. Since 2008 her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at the International Handwerksmesse Munich, The Museum of Arts and Crafts ITAMI Japan, The Gallery of Art Legnica in Poland, Beijing International Jewelry Art Biennial, World Art Museum and so on. Yu Fang Chi’s work is held in the collections of Gold Museum in Taiwan, Korea International Craft Biennale, and Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, France.
