Lin Yilin
The Result of 1000 Pieces

All his artworks utilize the use of body – the artist’s own body and that of others. The Result of 1000 Pieces typi?es an image of Lin: Lin is standing in an empty hole of a brick wall. By incorporating the brick wall for his work, Lin develops a speci?c strategy to question and negotiate with the relationship between people and the changing environments. The body appreciates a broader range of usages, and a brick wall is what is left behind.

Lin Yilin’s practice has always been an energetic and witty mingling of social architecture and everyday life. He uses sculpture, installation, performance, photography, and videos to explore how urban development affects the ways in which people relate to community and space.
