>My body is a queer history museum >

The notion of performing archives as interpreting historical accumulations in museum settings shapes this work, in which an individual body as a historical embodiment can be transformed into a spatial narration, an archive, and even a history museum.
River Lin and seven performers will conduct a 4-day workshop at the exhibition space of "BOOCHOA:Liqueered " in the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, developing the queer body archive of each performer and present the work on 7 and 8 November on site.

River Lin is an artist whose work is performance-based in gallery settings. In his work, the artist’s body is often staged and situated in relation to time, objects, surroundings, audience engagement, or specific cultural contexts. The main concern has revolved around exploring how the artist’s body can produce discourse and social meaning, and how performance as a medium can transform viewers’ sensations and experiences with art.
About the Artist:
River’s work has been presented by international institutions, including the Palais de Tokyo and Centre National de la Danse in Paris, the KANAL Centre Pompidou and KAAI Theatre in Brussels, Manifesta 11 in Zurich, Asia Contemporary Art Week, ANTI Contemporary Art Festival in Kuopio, the M+ Museum in Hong Kong, 2016 Taipei Biennial and the Liveworks Festival in Sydney among others.
