Lives and works in Paris, France
River Lin is an artist whose work is performance-based in gallery settings. In his work, the artist's body is often staged and situated in relation to time, objects, surroundings, audience engagement, or specific cultural contexts. The main concern has revolved around exploring how the artist's body can produce discourse and social meaning, and how performance as a medium can transform viewers' sensations and experiences with art.
River's work has been presented by international institutions, including the Palais de Tokyo and Centre National de la Danse in Paris, the KANAL Centre Pompidou and KAAI Theatre in Brussels, Manifesta 11 in Zurich, Asia Contemporary Art Week, ANTI Contemporary Art Festival in Kuopio, the M+ Museum in Hong Kong, 2016 Taipei Biennial and the Liveworks Festival in Sydney among others.
