Synopsis:

Made during the lockdown in Scotland in 2020, ‘March into April’ is a collage of parallel worlds. The apparent security of staying at home with its linear time flow is juxtaposed with the wider external world revisited in memories which traverse time and place. The storm raging outside is mirrored by spectral disturbances in the inner space. Another element in this collage is a string of text which embodies multiple layers of meaning and associative imagination.

Biography:

Originally from Hong Kong, Lin Li now resides in Scotland. She uses sound and moving image in her creative practice. Her work includes short meditative videos which explore concepts such as ‘transience’ being an existential essence. She has also made more socially engaged works with particular interests on marginal voices. Her videos have been shown internationally in various festivals (linli-art.com/screenings-and-exhibitions).
