Born in 1986 and currently based in Taipei, LIN Yi-Chi holds a master’s degree in art from the Taipei National University of the Arts, and she is currently pursuing another master’s degree in film from the National Taiwan University of Arts. Her artistic practice predominantly consists of video art, experimental film, and video installation.
LIN’s recent creative focus is on the experience of diaspora under the historical context of the Cold War in East Asia, which extends into memories and dreams associated with personal identity politics. She treats images as a necromancy-like medium, which she uses to facilitate the re-enchantment of individual experiences set in the contemporary space-time. Her work summons marginal and regional recounts and engages in the reproduction of national, historical, and communal memories.
LIN was invited to represent Taiwan at the 2019 Biennale Jogja, and she has also participated in several curatorial projects, film festivals, and international residency programs in Taiwan and abroad. A finalist for the 16th Taishin Arts Award, she has also been presented with several other distinctions, including first prize of the Pulse Prize in Miami, USA (2019); first prize of Kaohsiung Award (2018); first prize of the 40th Golden Harvest Awards for Best Experimental Film (2018); MIT (Made in Taiwan) New Artist Award (2018); and Taipei Art Awards honorable mention (2018).
