Lin, Yen-Ju


Born in 1989 in Taichung, Taiwan, Lin graduated from Taipei National University of the Arts, Department of Fine Arts, and currently studies at the Taipei National University of the Arts MFA Program in New Media Arts. She lives and works in Taipei.
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 in 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).

In the production of this series, I collected several images of Western architecture and interior objects from magazines and books; I then cut and pasted them into a collage for the draft, creating a domain without a boundary, and then painted the final draft on the canvas. These objects do not belong to a certain background or chronological context: some belong to the Greek and Roman style, some are Medieval manors, some are Baroque, others are Neo-Classical, while some styles were d ...

Mr. Universe
2010-2012
When we turn on the TV, images related to the universe and aliens fill the screen, whether it is film, theater, or related news and speculations...they are common themes found in the media. In the series “Mr. Universe,” I wanted to depict the reality of Taiwan and other Third World countries through the production of the science-fiction film. In trying to simulate and replicate the products not originated from local technology and cultural contexts, the result images are prone to revea ...

Good-to-be-home Luggage
There are multicultural architectural elements in Taiwan’s housing from 1940 to 1980. I had lived in this kind of old house in Taiwan during my childhood. These residential elements have not only become my childhood memories, but also gradually constructed a feeling of belonging of home, as well as land. Therefore, dwellings have become my objects of attention. I have noticed that Taiwan’s housing is like the recombination and collage of multicultural symbols. Affected by the impact of ...

Stream may be...... Pillow, Stone can Rinse......
My 2015 residency at Bamboo Curtain Studio culminated in the residency project and solo exhibition “Stream may be...Pillow, Stone can Rinse”. In the past, I had three years experience of residing in Zhuwei without little knowledge of its natural or humanistic surroundings. During my residency, I conducted several interviews with local residents, in attempt to piece together the process of the region’s alteration and its narratives as the initiation of my localization. After having reconstruct ...
