Artist Spotlight: Yung Cheng Lin

Lin7

Yung Cheng Lin’s recent photographs feature her usual precision and extreme contortions while taking on the issue of female body modification. Each image contains a persistent red string, digitally manipulated to look like it’s been threaded through the women’s skin. See more of Lin’s work below.

99 Balloons, 1 Brick of Gold, 7000 Thumbtacks

Sikic1

Sikic3

Peruvian artist Iván Sikic addresses the growing income gap through an installation involving 99 balloons, one gilded brick, and 7000 thumbtacks. While events like Occupy Wallstreet brought the fact that 1% of the population controls the majority of the world’s wealth into the mainstream, Sikic aims to keep that conversation going. “It’s My Party and I Do What I Want To” is cheeky but it’s the kind of poking fun that draws attention to the sheer ridiculousness of that reality and what it means for the rest of the 99%.
