Why I Want to Be an Artist
Single-channel video
35 minutes 55 seconds
Edition of 5 + 1AP

In the exhibition hall, Lin Aojie stimulates an in-house display design humorously and thoughtfully: in front of a cosy sofa, there is a television playing video clip of the artist having conversations with curator, writer Miao Zijin. As the Chinese title of his 2019 solo show “Yue Xiu” suggests, which is actually the name of a district in Guangzhou, Lin tries to reflect Guangdong’s contemporary art scene through his own path of art learning.
