Joo Choon Lin

b. 1984

Choon Lin Joo has been experimenting with a range of materials and media as a means to examine the relations between visual and tactile experiences. Underlying Joo’s practice is her philosophical interest in the nature of reality which might be summarized in terms of the philosophers’ longstanding investigation into the relations between appearance and essence. Joo’s own investigation into these questions is also informed by her interest in technological developments: as the various technologies of representation devise new ways of capturing the likeness of things, so the quality of the surfaces of these things undergoes a transformation. Consequently, reality itself appears as if reconfigured.

Joo has exhibited in Singapore and internationally. She has participated in exhibitions such as the 4th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale, Japan (2009), 1st Aichi Triennale, Japan (2010), Roving Eye at Sorlandets Kunstmuseum, Norway (2011) and Resolution of Reality at Third Floor Hermes, Singapore (2012).
