CLOSE

Yi-Chun Lin

The winning entry in the 2014 Aspen Online Art Award was Another Escape by Yi Chun Lin.

Another Escape is a digital film which drew its inspiration from large Shan shui paintings and scrolls that are unrolled and hung vertically.

 


Yi-Chun Lin was born in Nantou, Taiwan, in 1983.

He specialises in digital graphics, drawing and moving images.

His work is deeply influenced by connections to the natural world as well as ancient Chinese philosophy and arts practices.

Yi-Chun applies modern practices and techniques to express the oriental aesthetic and philosophy through his artwork. He is dedicated to introducing the oriental aesthetic to a broader audience through the use of animation and other mediums that are more accessible to the wider public.

Yi-Chun Lin currently lives and works in South-East London and his native country Taiwan.

Hilde Krohn Huse

Hilde Krohn Huse works within the field of narratives; editing, manipulating, twisting and skewing information and narrative content to control the viewers perceptions while also making them aware of the process. Krohn Huse’s content usually consists of found material which then comes together in films or collages or text to create an entirely new narrative. Krohn Huse also creates filmed performances which play with the honesty of performance and the deceptive qualities of modern film, creating a conflict with the integrity of the performance.

Millou van der Maaden

Milou was born in 1986, in Oss, The Netherlands. Her practice involves the interpretation and re-contextualisation of archival material in video and photographic media.

In her installations she brings together different forms of re-presented history using their affective visual signifiers to lay bare and subvert their original working. The work explores how trauma and violence is represented in the art-historical context, which constitutes their meaning in contemporary readings, but whose spectres enclosing, subjugates of colonial powers, and suppressed sexuality (queerness) become present.

Van der Maaden studied her BA in Fine Art Media at the Utrecht School of the Arts. She has been nominated for several awards including the Start Point Prize and the Piet Bakker Prize in 2011. Both the VSB Foundation and the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds awarded her with a scholarship in 2012.
