Artist talk with April Lin 林森

April Lin 林森 (b. 1996, Stockholm — they/them) is an artist-filmmaker investigating image-making  as a site for the construction, sustenance, and dissemination of co-existent yet conflicting truths. April Lin 林森 uses video as a self-reflexive and cathartic tool, interweaving strands of auto-biography, world-building, documentary, performance, and the post-Internet, topped off with an inevitable garnish consisting of the other matters dialoguing with their brain and heart during the making process of each piece. Uniting their genre-fluid body of work is a commitment to centring oppressed knowledges, building an ethics of collaboration around reciprocal care, and exploring the linkages between history, memory, and interpersonal and structural trauma. Their films have been shown and screened at: HOME, Beijing International Short Film Festival, Lausanne Underground Film & Music Festival, NOWNESS Asia.

“When I visited Braziers Park in the summer of 2019, it was a much-needed reminder of how fundamentally important it is to rest. To take a break or distance oneself from the rapid constant pressure that capitalistic everyday life puts on one. “
