JIA-JEN LIN

USA/Taiwan 1980

Jia-Jen Lin creates images of the human body and its surroundings as a reflection of our psyche. Drawing from personal experience and observations, Lin uses sculpture integrated with photography, video, and performance to portray the ongoing negotiation between our latent desires and the manipulated realities in which we find ourselves. Hybrid cultures, shifting identities, and the relationships between our physicality and psychology are subjects Lin has investigated since 2004. Her recent projects explore humanity’s experience of displacement, self-consciousness and loss and how memories change with modified experience and new events.

Jia-Jen Lin is a Taiwanese artist based in New York. Lin received her MFA in sculpture, installation, and multimedia from the joint degree program at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Tufts University, and her BFA in Western Painting from National Taiwan Normal University. She has participated in artist residencies at International Studio & Curatorial Program, New York; L’Estruch, Spain; Water Mill Center, New York; Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Nebraska; and Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts. Exhibitions include Queens International 4, Queens Museum; Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale, South Korea; Young Artist Discovery, Art Taipei; and Manufractura, Hangar Art, Barcelona. She has received grants from Brooklyn Arts Council, Sculpture Space, Franconia Sculpture Park, National Culture and Arts Foundation of Taiwan, and Ministry of Culture of Taiwan.
