the work of taiwanese artist michael lin will often incorporate the transformation of a collective or public space in order to explore the dynamic relationship between people and their environment. his latest piece ‘model home’, involves the construction of a shelter realized in collaboration with professional architects atelier bow-wow, which pushes this investigation to a new threshold – inviting a unique cultural and social exchange by recontextualizing the concept of a residence as refuge, escape. the simple structure, setup on the rooftop of rockbund art museum in shanghai, china, is an artificial reincarnation of a home that intends to explore the idea and practices concerning contemporary art, its place in society, as well as issues surrounding site-specificity. ‘model home’ reflects the ideas of german architect walter gropius for the bauhaus (1919) with the idea of a total work of art which integrates architecture, painting and sculpture. the work then becomes a conceptual social practice that moves beyond the boundaries of culture and medium, and experiments with the role the rockbund art museum can play in our contemporary society.
