Lin Tianmiao: Systems
This catalogue reveals the artworks of Lin Tianmiao’s solo exhibition at the Rockbund Art Museum (RAM). The concept of “Systems,” which is the title of the exhibition, originates from the system of the human body and draws from a range of modern critical and political theories and contemporary psychology. As Consultant Curator, Alexandra Munroe describes, “Lin creates or poses ‘systems’ that examine, expose and reimagine the workings of the self in relation to shifting social and technological realities. These systems function on a physical as well as allegorical, even poetic level. Throughout her immersive work in all media, the human body is her central concern.” The catalogue designed and produced for this exhibition continues the research in the exhibition, bringing together archival material, selected texts, and exhibition images. The texts form an integral component of Lin Tianmiao’s solo exhibition “Systems “, offering viewers a trajectory to engage with different readings from the exhibition. Lin Tianmiao’s artworks are divided into five sections in this catalogue and introduced by renowned juries and curators, including Alexandra Munroe, Pi Li, Lu Mingjun, X Zhu-Nowell and the artist herself.
