Candice Lin: A Hard White Body, a Porous Slip
Candice Lin: A Hard White Body, a Porous Slip at the Logan Center opens Friday night. A tour led by the artist takes place the same evening. Los Angeles-based artist Candice Lin creates sculptural environments that breathe, seep, ferment, and decay. Working with an arsenal of sculptural forms that include finely crafted objects, organisms such as plants, insects, and bacteria, and natural compounds, Lin interrogates the ways in which histories of power and marginality are inscribed into bodies and into the natural world.
