Shao-Jie Lin

London-based Taiwanese artist Shao-Jie Lin’s practices consistently navigate his distinct poetic and imaginative sensibility toward anthropological and geopolitical concerns. His works applied digital media, installation, video and sculpture, focusing on the issue around border, mobility, equality and justice which Lin describes as a sort of ‘Utopian speculation’.
