My piece on Lin Tianmiao for AD China

My piece on the Chinese conceptual artist Lin Tianmiao and her most recent exhibition Systems at Shanghai’s Rockbund Art Museum is now out in the September issue of AD China.

This was probably one of the most intense interviews I’ve ever done. The moment of me conducting the interview was accidentally captured by a photographer friend on camera.

I’ve got to say, intense people are… intense. This reminds me of another contemporary artist I worked with for a very long time.
