Esther Lin is an interdisciplinary artist based in Taipei, Taiwan. Her current practice focuses on connecting experimental narratives between literature and installation, and their organic interaction with society. She is good at telling stories with mixed media of objects, texts and images, and her practice intends to capture phases of transition within the modern daily system and to explore the transformation and fluidity of identity and value. Her research and interests include the production of materials in relation to memory, the spatiality of time, duration and process in space, and the relationship between object and documentation. She believes that art practice should always synchronize with real life, further to explore the boundaries of reality and imagination.
She has participated in several international group exhibitions and artist-in-residency programs in Okinawa, Tokyo, Taipei, and London. Selected exhibitions include Ulaanbaatar International Media Arts Festival, Mongolia (2019); Mabuni Peace Project, Okinawa (2019); Indicate Injustice: Proposals for Visual Identity and Memorial Object of Monuments of Injustice, National Human Rights Museum, Taiwan (2018); Sisyphus Version 20.18, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan (2018); On the Poetic of Islands, Pingtung Art Museum, Taiwan (2016); and Boundaries, Archipelago Magazine III, London (2015).
