林介文


2008年於西班牙巴塞隆納自治大學,浮游空間設計系取得碩士學位。擅以編織結合金工技法進行複合媒材創作的林介文,作品關注族群遷徙、女性議題、自我認同等面向,並以此探討時空變異中傳統文化與現代都會生活交互影響下之意義消長與反思。2011年更與大學摯友陳若軒共同出版《嫁妝》攝影文集。書中從翻起滿佈塵埃的衣櫃開始,布料紋理揭示對奶奶(bubu)的各種微小印象與回憶,相機對焦記憶線索,將我們拉進時間流,循著記憶線索與布紋,在綿綿交織的手感中緩緩追索。2014年,不受限於媒材與形式,游刃於傳統與當代之間的林介文榮獲Pulima藝術獎首獎殊榮。2016年,邀請太魯閣族、賽德克族、泰雅族30名「織女」,共同創作新城(太魯閣)車站公共藝術〈織路〉,將一件件束之高閣的毛衣拆解還原成線球,重新編織,織出她們對家鄉的情感,以及回家的路。



Gieh Wen Lin


Gieh Wen Lin (also known as Labay Eyong) obtained her master’s degree in ephemeral architecture and temporary space design from the School of Architecture at the Autonomous University of Barcelona in 2008. She specializes in mixed media art that combines weaving with metalwork and focuses on topics of diaspora, feminine issues, and self-identity. She also uses her art to explore and reflect on shifting values that have resulted from the interconnected impacts that spatial and temporal changes have on traditional culture and modern urban lifestyle. In 2011, she co-published the photography book, Tminun Pdsun, with Chen Ro-Hsuan, whom she has been good friends with since college.The book begins with a dusty wardrobe, showing textile patterns that reveal different delicate sentiments and memories of “bubu”, or grandmother. Through the camera lens, memories and clues are focused on, as the readers are pulled into a river of time to follow the patterns on the fabric and discover clues uncovered from memories. With every crisscrossing weave, a journey of searching is slowly opened up by the touch of the hand. In 2014, Lin was recognized with a Pulima Art Award for her art that transcends beyond medium and form and traverses freely between tradition and contemporaneity. In 2016, Lin co-created the public artwork, Elug Tminun, for the Xincheng Taroko Train Station with 30 Truku, Sediq, and Atayal tribal women weavers. The piece is woven with yarn recycled from unwanted sweaters, which weaves together the sentiments that those women hold for their homelands and also symbolizes a way back home.
