Born in 1982 in Taiwan, Kuo-Wei Lin moved to Paris in 2000 and enrolled at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon in 2002. After attending the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig in 2005, he earned a Master of Art degree from Chelsea College of Art in London in 2007. In 2010, he participated in projects at the Institute für Kunst im Kontext, Universität der Künste Berlin, and in 2012 he earned his Meisterschüler at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee.

In Lin’s new work, he is focusing in the interlocking material relation of the audios, the visuals and the tactics. From a traditional craft to the industrial. Lin intends to extract the object and shifts it from its original purpose.

He often works with delicate phenomena such as wind, heat and sound, and takes different forms from photography to sculpture, installation to publishing and beyond.

The transience of Lin’s life as a long-term Taiwanese expatriate constantly influences his observations. In his work, he attempts to reconfigure materials and to intervene in our everyday reading of absurd phenomena, forming ambivalent questions about the experiences of daily life. He endeavours to understand the odd in the ordinary and the insignificant in the monumental by decoding and reconstructing the context. In his view, understanding a given context begins with identifying the exceptional and making possible a novel interaction with it. Lin’s works explore, articulate, reform, and give certain accents to contradictory spaces in relation to social topology and his individual experience of displacement.

Kuo-Wei Lin has exhibited his works at the Larnaca Biennale, Cyprus (2023); Missread HKW, Berlin (2022); Papier Marché, Steirischer Herbst, Austria (2021); einBuch.haus Berlin (2020); Taipei Fine Arts Museum (2016); the Taipei Biennial (2014); the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei (2013); the Institut Français Berlin, Germany (2012); the Centre Emile Hamilius, Casino Luxembourg (2011); the Uferhallen, Berlin (2010); Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei (2009); the Manggha Centre of Japanese Art and Technology, Krakow, Poland (2008); the Tate Britain, London (2007); and the Goethe-Institut Lyon, France (2006).

He also collaborates in an artist run self-publishing collective since 2019: ANDPRESS.

He lives and works in Berlin and Bremen.
