Phenomenal trans filmmaker and artist Wu Tsang shows how differences between us can be a good thing

Wu Tsang is one of a kind. It’s not because her films are unique and tackle topics that are deemed taboo by many others. It’s not because she’s a transgender artist. It’s because she embraces what is ordinarily considered as a hindrance to working fully.

She likes working with people with whom she shares no common language.

“Growing up in a multiracial family, I never learned Chinese, so I was used to having ‘conversations’ that weren’t verbal. When there’s an understanding that we can’t fully understand each other, that’s a better space for me. It’s happening all the time, but maybe it’s more obvious when we’re speaking a different language.”

Wu Tsang, Devotional Document (Part 1) is at Nottingham Contemporary, 20 May to 28 August; then at Fact, Liverpool, from October.
