Christopher Lin (b. 1988, New Port Richey, FL; lives and works in New York) graduated with a BA from Yale University in 2010 and an MFA from Hunter College in 2015. Combining elements of systematic experimentation and rigorous practice, his sculptures, installations, and conceptual projects explore materials that are familiar to the viewer but are presented in an unfamiliar way. Through careful arrangements of found objects and performative encounters, the everyday is twisted and made visceral. Play transforms into contemplation as he explores themes such as transience, the human condition, and environmental anxiety.
Lins work has been exhibited in New York and Chicago, recently at Flux Factory (Queens, NY), Church of St. Paul the Apostle (New York, NY), Ethan Cohen Fine Arts (New York, NY), and The Active Space (Brooklyn, NY) among others. He received the C12 Emerging Artist Fellowship in 2016 and is currently an Artist-in-Residence at the Hercules Art/Studio Program.
