JESSI ALI-JIN (twn)

Jessi Ali Lin is an artist working with and through sculpture, video, performance, and embodiment. Her work exploits the notion of positionality both in terms of physical position and the multivalence of identity. Lin’s multifaceted practice examines the relationships between the performance of the self, its fragmented nature, and its location within the social and built environment.

Lin holds a MFA in interdisciplinary art from the University of Pennsylvania. She has received awards and fellowships from the Dedalus Foundation and Vermont Studio Center. Her work has been exhibited at Hong-gah Museum, Taipei; EFA Project Space, New York; IceBox Project Space, Philadelphia; and Dixon Place, New York. Her video works have been shown at international film festivals, including 25FPS in Zagreb, Croatia; Kassel Documetary Film and Video Festival; Beijing International Short Film Festival; Bideodromo Experimental Film and Video Festival in Bilbao; and Saigon Experimental Film Festival. Recent projects include residencies at SOMA Mexico, RAIR in Philadelphia, 18th Street Art Center in Los Angeles, and a solo exhibition at MoCA Taipei.
