Sunday, March 27 at 13:00, artist Lin Wang will present her long-term artistic project, «Exotic Dreams and Poetic Misunderstandings», and her current exhibition «Still Life» at Trøndelag Centre for Contemporary Art.
The presentation will be given in English, and the event is free.
In her project «Exotic Dreams and Poetic Misunderstandings» (2016 – ongoing), Lin Wang has presented installations of delicate porcelain, solo exhibitions, and performative events rendering the ancient historical maritime trading routes between the West and the East. Using globalization as a backdrop, she brings representations of trade in goods, cultural and political exchanges, the sea, seafarers, and the body into contemporary discourse.
At Trøndelag Centre for Contemporary Art Lin presents the next chapter of the project: «Still Life». Her installations are visual feasts for the eyes and senses, and they evoke associations with the beauty and rich symbolism of Dutch still-life paintings. At the same time, they bring a sense of discomfort and unrest about the stories told of eastern and western culture.
Lin Wang (b. 1985, China) works with sculpture, porcelain installations, and performance. Her work involves different aspects such as sound, smell, food, video, and tattoo art. Wang has a BA from the China Academy of Art and an MA from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design. She has presented her work at Vigelandmuseet and Kunsthall Grenland, and she has held performances at KODE and Kunstnernes Hus. Her work has been acquired by the National Museum in Oslo and the Municipality of Oslo. Wang lives and works in Oslo, and in Jingdezhen, China.
Lin Wang has received support from Arts Council Norway, The Audio and Visual Fund, and Regional Project Funding for Visual Art.
