Lin Yilin

b. 1964, China

"I was concerned with the materials that I was using from a giving concept, or with the extermination of the social implications or characteristics that the materials carried. I tried to find the extreme limits of the possibility of a piece of ordinary material of an object and create a particular characteristic by combining objects in a strange way.
