Please join us in welcoming Lung-Chieh Lin from April through June. Lin will present an artist talk on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at 6 pm. This presentation is free and open to the public. 

NCC’s spring McKnight Resident Artist joins us from Taiwan. Lung-Chieh Lin earned his MFA in 2011 from Tainan National University of the Arts and has since worked in Spain, Denmark, Oman, and Poland. His work has been included in group exhibitions in Taiwan, as well as in Spain, Korea, Japan, China, Hungary, and Austria, and in a one-person show in South Carolina. 

During his residency, Lin will create forms that take cues and derive “species” from the environment, such as buildings, human behavior, light, and time. He writes, “I have extracted images of the artificial objects that I have formed emotional connections with (outlets on a computer, the speakers of a sound system, the vents on an air conditioner) and mixed them with organic beings, such as the insects, plants, and micro-organisms found in the space I exist in. The results are a medley of creature-like forms, with the objective of representing the perceptual experience that the body has with the micro-matters in its dwelling place.”
