Artist

Jia-Jen Lin

Jia-Jen Lin creates images of the human body and its surroundings as a reflection of our psyche. Drawing from personal experience and observations, Lin uses sculpture integrated with photography, video, and performance to portray the ongoing negotiation between our latent desires and the manipulated realities in which we find ourselves. Hybrid cultures, shifting identities, and the relationships between our physicality and psychology are subjects Lin has investigated since 2004. Her recent projects explore the processes of catastrophic losses and how moderations of memories allow us to adapt to change.

Jia-Jen Lin is a Taiwanese artist based in New York. Lin attended National Taiwan Normal University for a BFA in Western Painting and received her MFA in sculpture, installation, and multimedia from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Lin has participated in artist residencies at L’Estruch, Sabadell, Spain; Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Nebraska; and Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts. Exhibitions include Queens International 4, Queens Museum; Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale, South Korea; Young Artist Discovery, Art Taipei; and Manufactura, Hangar Art, Barcelona. She has received grants from several United States organizations including Sculpture Space, Franconia Sculpture Park, and Brooklyn Arts Council.

James Wallace Arts Trust

Studio #204

Artist

André Hemer

André Hemer’s practice pursues a new mode of representation in painting, whereby image and form are transacted back and forth between materialised and de-materialised states. In doing so, Hemer’s paintings literally re-present the contemporary experience of digital media through the traditional painting object, revealing the most basic changes to our phenomenological experience of the contemporary world.

André Hemer’s work has been exhibited at Luis De Jesus Los Angeles; Yavuz Gallery, Singapore; Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London; Tristian Koenig Gallery, Melbourne; Total Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul; and Münchner Stadtmuseum, Germany. In 2016 he was awarded a New Generation Award by the Arts Foundation of New Zealand, and was the winner of the Wallace Arts Trust Paramount Award. He has been included in major publications such as 100 Painters of Tomorrow, Thames & Hudson, London, and Art and the Internet, Black Dog Publishing, London. In 2016 Hemer was invited to edit the publication Painting Regarding the Present, published by Naives and Visionaries, Berlin. He is based in Vienna, Austria.
