Lin Jingjing works with experiences that have personally influenced her, experiences that are a part of common culture, but nonetheless remain firmly in the hands of the individual. Initially, Lin's work is about people, interpersonal relationships, and their internal and external vulnerabilities which she then transfers onto social traditions and processes in a very sophisticated way. She uses found materials and alters these, reforming them or 'hurting' them through embroidery in order to bring together new associations, both contextually and aesthetically.

This exhibition will present installations, objects and photographs. Lin's works, in each medium, are often combined with performative processes. Silence and evident reluctance are significant characteristics of Lin's artistic language. Nevertheless, her expression is so strong that it goes beyond the beauty of the works and confronts the viewer with existential topics.

With the de-individualization of her own experience in order to transfer this into something of a universal nature, she does not restrict herself to her own familiar culture. With simple artistic means, she is able to draw a cross-cultural image of people, their fears, their longings and desires.



林菁菁的创作基于个人经验,这种经验虽来源于公共文化,却牢牢掌握在个体手中。其作品主要是关于人的,人与人之间的关系,还有人的内在及外在缺陷,均被艺术家以极为精致繁复的方式转接到社会传统之上。通过刺绣的方式,对基础材料进行调整,改变或"伤害",从内容和审美两方面来整合新的关联。

此次展览以装置,物品和照片为主。其作品通常与行为性的表现方法结合在一起,无论何种媒介。其艺术语言的特点是缄默与显而易见的不情愿。无论如何,她所表达的内容极为强烈,超越了作品自身的美感,令观者直面存在主义的主题。

在将自身经验非个体化,转为共性经验的过程中,艺术家并未局限于自己熟悉的文化。通过简单的艺术手段,艺术家得以描绘出一幅关于人类及其恐惧,渴望和欲念的跨文化图像。
