Chung-Yung Lin was born in Kaohsiung in 1967. He approaches art and creation from an ecological and environmental viewpoint and particularly lays emphasis on property justice. As a resident artist, he gains deep understanding of local culture and community, and he manages to generalize Taiwan situations to global issues and eventually extends to the sustainability of worldwide marine ecology.

Under the pseudonym “Chun-Yung’s Fake Excavation Team,” Lin creates artwork by simulating archaeology excavations, site reconstruction and antique replication. His exhibit “Excavation Plan of Architectural Ruins in Sin Siang Lang Seacoast” is a forged archaeological site critiquing the exploitation of the coastline in Taiwan and won him the 2014 Austronesian International Arts Award.

In 2015 Lin was inspired by multiple incidents of stranded and dead sperm whales around Taiwan. He then produced gigantic woodcut installment “The Death of Sperm Whale” and wave break miniatures “Rouzongjiao Taiwan geographic map,” and “Rouzongjiao in Cigu.” All the above artpieces adopt drift objects from the ocean to highlight the relation between human and the nature and serve as alert of ocean crisis to the islanders.
