Ling-lin Ku’s studio is a playground—an alchemical composition of the world around her. Playing between electronic data and tangible materials through digital fabrication, her work references quotidian objects, including food, body parts, and commercial products. While upending our relationship with the known, through the use of proximity, scale, texture, display structures, and material, the work slips in and out of categorization—creating a new way in which we come to understand objecthood.
Ling-lin is a Taiwan born, U.S. based multimedia artist. She received her MFA from University of Texas at Austin and BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. In addition to being an artist Ling-lin has a background in music and law—holding a degree in Law in Taiwan. Ling-lin has exhibited her work nationally and internationally; her recent solo exhibitions include Play without Play, Wayfarer Gallery, Brooklyn, Off the Map, Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum, Austin, and Dead Warm, Sawyer Yard, Houston.
Ling-lin loves travel and has been selected into residencies including International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn, Salzburg International Summer Academy, Austria, Ox-Bow artist and writer residency, Saugatuck, MI, Helene Wurlitzer Foundation, Taos, NM, and Haystack Open Studio, ME. Ling-lin has received many awards; she is one of the four recipients of the Seebacher Prize for Fine Arts awarded by the American Austrian Foundation, Umlauf Prize winner in Austin, and Artadia Fellow in Houston.
