Kimkim Lin Solo Exhibition: The Garden of Memories
Constructed with hands, the illusion sometimes comes closer to the real world in one＆#039;s heart. Artist KimKim Lin excels in expressing ownership of a certain period of time through the process of transplanting plants into potted gardens. In "The Garden of Memories," the next step in her previous "Transplant" series, she continues her longing for the old family garden. Drawing inspiration from the courtyard her father once created, surrounded by the memories of cherry blossoms, pine trees, camellias, and iron trees, she rebuilds and nourishes the garden with her childhood memories.
"When objects deviate from their original dimensions, they gain the ability to escape the order of time, becoming isolated from the external world and possessing an independent temporality." KimKim Lin uses clay to nurture boundless love and longing, growing trees of surreal dimensions, creating a pathway to revisit cherished moments. The reduction in size within is not a subtraction, but rather a condensation process that blends childhood memories into it. At this moment, potted plants, overflowing with care and nurturing, may no longer belong to the realm of present time and space, yet they are transformed into precious collections and emotional memories that exist eternally.
Born in Taiwan in 1990, KimKim Lin graduated from the National University of Tainan＆#039;s Graduate Institute of Applied Arts, specializing in ceramics. She had previously undertaken residencies and creative projects in Japan, South Korea, Finland, the United States, and Singapore. She’s currently based in Tainan, where she focuses on her ceramics artistry. Her inspiration often stems from everyday life, as well as her deep appreciation for childhood memories and toys. Her artwork reflects a childlike perspective, characterized by its simplicity and clarity.
KimKim＆#039;s works frequently involve freely scaling and adjusting the proportions of her ceramic sculptures, emphasizing the playfulness and precious meaning of toys. They convey a childlike curiosity and love for life, maintaining an intimate connection between her and her creative process, her artworks, and the viewers. She was a finalist in the 2013 1st New Taipei City Ceramics Award, and her work is held in the collection of the National Institute of Education in Singapore.
