Yi-Chun LIN（Esther LIN） is a contemporary artist living and working in Taipei, Taiwan. In 2016, she completed her MFA degree in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London. She is skilled at setting up a trap between reality and imagination through complex psychological sensations, body measurement, and the use of allegory. Her practice explores and creates around the idea of the double meaning of the world and the exclusive. (And sometimes, she might accidentally come out with chaotic results.) Lin received the Judge's Award at the Taipei Awards in 2015 and has participated in several national and international group exhibitions and AIR programs in Okinawa, Tokyo, Taipei, London, Mongolia, and Los Angeles—for example, her AIR project at the 18th Street Arts Center in LA, the 2019 Ulaanbaatar Media Festival, the Peer Learning project in Jakarta, and the like.
Most of her works are composed of commentary combined with spatial installation. By deconstructing the logic of daily life, she intends to magnify phases of transition within the modern daily system and explores the transformation and fluidity of identity and value. Her research and interests include the production of materials in relation to memory, the politics of the time, duration and process in space, and the relationship between object and description. Her works also relate to such topics as city life, modern syndrome, boundaries, fake science measurement, linguistics, utopia, and institutional critique. Her current practice focuses on experimenting with cross-topic creation and exhibition events.
