Underlying Joo’s practice is her philosophical interest in the nature of reality which might be summarized in terms of the philosophers’ longstanding investigation into the relations between appearance and essence. Choon Lin’s own investigation into these questions is also informed by her interest in technological developments: as the various technologies of representation devise new ways of capturing the likeness of things, so the quality of the surfaces of these things undergoes a transformation. Consequently, reality itself appears as if reconfigured. She has been experimenting with a range of materials and media as a means to examine the relations between visual and tactile experiences. Joo has exhibited work locally and internationally, participating in shows such as 4th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale, Japan (2009), 1st Aichi Triennale, Japan (2010), Roving Eye at Sorlandets Kunstmuseum, Norway (2011), Resolution of Reality at Third Floor Hermes gallery, Singapore (2012), Your Eyes Are Stupid at Singapore Biennale (2013), Be Mysterious, Walter Phillips Gallery, The Banff Centre, Canada (2014) and Paradise Sans Promesse, Frac de Pays de la Loire, Nantes, France (2015)

  1. Hi Choon Lin

    Your installation at 8Q was interesting and cute!
    May I know the meaning of “sculptural marquette”?

    Have a good weekend!

    1. Hello Yoko,

      Thank you for enjoying the exhibition.
      Marquette means a testing model, a prototype.
