Mo Projects is proudly to present Lin Jiayue’s new exhibition on December 26th 2015: “High Priest”. This is Lin’s first solo exhibition in Beijing, and it will be on view until March the 6th 2016.
In this exhibition, the artist Lin has used the gallery’s long and narrow space to present her work. It is a site-specific installation that’s made of a combination of sealed space, LED light, glass, water, metal, and wind flow. In the entrance, the artist has built a large wall and sealed the room with only a square window opened for the outside. She has created a “room” inside the wall, through which you could see a phenomenal scene of the “sunset”. It is a view that’s both familiar and bizarre. The work is self-contained, in the same time, functions when juxtaposing with our daily spectacle. Psychological experience was integral in this work, which was completed by the actual distance, and distance seen, but not our physically being in the removed space.
