Tracing, folding, binding

Creative workshop in the library

September 30, 2017 - 1 PM to 4:30 PM

We thrilled to welcome multidisciplinary artist Yen-Chao Lin for this year’s edition of Les journées de la culture! Join us for a bookmaking workshop in the library. This activity is an opportunity to reinterpret our collection and explore simple folding and binding techniques with the guidance of invited artist Yen-Chao Lin, as we highlight artists who work in the medium of bookmaking and drawing. In order to provide inspiration, several artists’ books will be out on display for you to peruse.

Yen-Chao Lin is a Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist, self-described postmodern archivist, and a natural history enthusiast. She is an avid collector of all things from found family records to Victorian ephemera and biological specimens. Her works are often inspired by oral histories, folk religion practices, as well as recurring hauntological themes. Lin holds a BFA from Concordia University with a major in film production. Her works has been shown at Festival du nouveau cinéma (Montreal), Antimatter Media Art (Victoria), Women Make Waves (Taipei), Oboro (Montreal), articule (Montreal) amongst others. She is currently a core member and key programmer for Atelier Céladon.
