Statement





Linhuei Chen is a Taiwanese Dutch artist based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Her diaspora experiences trigger her to question its impact on transcultural people’s notions of home and cultural hybridity through memories. In her artistic practice, she makes paintings as the primary medium and often combines them with drawings, objects, or audiovisual installations.

From the memories she collects, she has been building a world of Memory Diaspora, in which transcultural memories are stored and evolve together. Different types of optical viewers sometimes appear in her work. She uses them as metaphors for her transcultural experiences between the East and West.
