Born in 1972, Chi-I Lin is Assistant Professor at the Division of Humanities and Social Science in the Center for General Education of National Sun Yat-Sen University (2010 to date). She holds a PhD in English Literature at the University of Edinburgh (2009). In 2003, she participated in Seji Shimoda’s workshop and started her major performance art works in the 8th Nippon International Performance Art Festival (NIPAF); since then she has been doing performance arts in galleries and festivals. Her works tackle the themes of historical and political events of Taiwan and she mainly uses her body skin as a live media. With the skin’s sensitivity to a variety of stimuli, her works explore the vulnerability and in/tolerance of “writing history”, engaging the body and mind in intense dialogue.
