Born on the island of Penghu in 1964, Shi Jin-Hua is a conceptual and performance artist currently lives and works in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Being a type I diabetic, monitoring and recording physical conditions and insulin injections have been parts of his life since he was 17. Confronting the stern matter of life and death all the time, Shi treats his own body as an instrument for artistic execution. His practice relates closely to measuring and recording, reflecting the extraordinary spirit. He has participated in Taipei Biennial and Asian Art Biennial. Public collections owning his works include White Rabbit Collection, Australia, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, Art Bank, Taiwan and Fidelity International. A major solo exhibition of the artist, Lines - Contemporary Religious Art by Shi Jin-Hua, was held at Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts in October, 2017.
