Lin Jingjing develops installations, performances, video and mixed media. In her works, she explores the depths of social and personal identity in the context of contemporary society, by taking themes such as confusion and quest, existence and absence, constraint and resistance and confronting them through the lens of paradox. She is particularly interested in how individuals define themselves in relation to the outside world and its effects, vis-à-vis culture, politics, history and economy. Lin is known for the thread layering process that she applies to her paintings and installations. The surreal effect created through this method creates an immersive experience which takes the viewers into another realm.
Support: Lin Jingjing's residency is made possible with support from Best6.
