Lin, Yen Ju

Born in 1989 in Taichung, Taiwan. She lives and works in Taipei. Lin graduated from Taipei National University of the Arts, Department of Fine Arts, and Taipei National University of the Arts MFA Program in New Media Arts.
Lin works with various mediums, including painting, video, mixed media, installation, seeking compensation for existence and memory through different forms. Her works often embody a historical sense of the contemporary. She often focuses on the cultural codes embedded in the environment, architecture and images, reflecting through her work signs of the other collaged into the subjectivity of her own culture. She also attempts to realize in her works a ‘safe haven’ for retreat when personally confronted with the internal desire to escape from reality. This internal ideal and the surrounding reality form a contrasting relationship, illustrating the complex paradoxes the artist shows for reality, therefore, affording the geographical indicators within her works a sense of distant familiarity.
Lin’s works have toured Linz, Berlin, Paris, London, Marseilles and Dresden for the group exhibition “ Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0”. Other group shows include the 8th Digital Art Festival Taipei – Data-Neurons” (2013), “Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award — Harmony in Diversity” (2013), “Nintender” (2011).

 

 

 

 

林晏竹

1989年生於台灣台中市,目前生活、創作於台北。畢業於國立台北藝術大學美術系、國立台北藝術大學新媒體藝術碩士班。
創作媒材包括繪畫、錄像、複合媒材、裝置,以不同形式尋求存在與記憶的補償,作品時常帶有當下的歷史感。同時常關注環境、建築與影像間的文化符碼,作品反映出自身文化主體中所拼貼的他者符號;並且企圖利用作品實踐出個人內在欲從現實遁逃的「安身之處」;此內在理想與現實環境成為一種對照關係,顯示出創作者對現實的種種矛盾情結,也因此在作品中的地理指涉都令人有雖近猶遠之感。
曾參與巡迴歐洲奧地利林茲、德國柏林、法國巴黎、英國倫敦、法國馬賽、德國德勒斯登的「Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0」聯展,以及2013年「第八屆台北數位藝術節 — 超神經」、2013年「形而上–第11屆桃源創作展」、2011年「嫩天堂」…等等。
