Candice Lin


Candice LinArtist’s Statement

As a multimedia artist working primarily in sculpture and video, my work addresses notions of cultural, gendered and racial difference, rampant sexualities and deviant behavior. It prods the porous nature of boundaries through the use of transitive materials: a sculptural installation of a tarred cornfield morphing into a hairy black pig, digital re-renderings of Mapplethorpe’s Black Book nudes transformed into Martian rocks, a human-sized cockroach with a metallic, spaceship exterior, studded with oozing, silicone vaginas. Circling around the ways in which boundaries between the bodies of self and other are porous and open to redefinition, my work examines how Western ideologies of the self influence the politics of power within notions of individualism, selfhood, freedom, and difference.
