Leslie Yao was born and raised in south China and is currently based in London and Shanghai. Yao grew up in ‘Da Zhongli’, a Shikumen villa in the centre of Shanghai, once the biggest and well-preserved traditional living community. The childhood memory of home being demolished for urbanisation process had a huge impact on him. He developed himself a strong interest in time, Zen philosophy and counter-urbanisation during his MA at Central Saint Martins College of Art, in London and continued ever since.
Leslie Yao 在中国南方出生、长大，目前在伦敦和上海工作。姚在上海市中心的石库门里弄"大中里"长大，这里曾经是规模最大的、保存最完整的传统居住社区。由于城市化进程，家园被拆除的童年记忆对他产生了巨大的影响。在伦敦中央圣马丁艺术与设计学院艺术学院获得硕士学位期间，他培养了自己对时间、禅宗哲学和反城市化的浓厚兴趣，并一直持续到现在。
In his work, Yao revolves his investigation around notions of temporality. Time is often the starting point of his explorations. He focuses on developing the tension between the ephemeral and eternal through bodily movements and engaging with multi-medium practice such as moving images, sound and objects. With the set and lighting design background, and a particular likeness towards the natural landscape, site-specificity is central to his practice. He works with micro-macro terrains as well as the physics of natural materials, including water and sand, to permeate poetry and Zen into his installation, videos and performances.
