Michael Lin

Michael Lin is an artist living and working in Taipei and Brussels. Lin turns away from painting as an object of contemplation toward one of painting as a bounded, physical space, one we can settle into and inhabit. Lin orchestrates monumental painting installations that re-conceptualize and reconfigure public spaces. Using patterns and designs appropriated from textiles his works have been exhibited in major institutions and international Biennials around the world, The Rock Bund Art Museum 2012, The Auckland Triennial and the California Pacific Triennial 2013, High Museum 2015, Museum Contemporary Art and Design, Manila 2016, and most recently at the National Gallery of Victoria. Transforming the institutional architecture of the public museum, his unconventional paintings invite visitors to reconsider their usual perception of those spaces, and to become an integral part of the work, giving meaning to its potential as an area for interaction, encounter, and re-creation.
