Tour of Candice Lin’s “Lithium Sex Demons In The Factory” with Summer Guthery

October 14, 2023 | 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Lithium Sex Demons in the Factory Candice Lin

Canal Projects introduces “Lithium Sex Demons in the Factory,” the inaugural New York solo show for Los Angeles artist Candice Lin. Our tour will be hosted by Artistic Director Summer Guthery. This project, a collaborative effort between Canal Projects and the 14th Gwangju Biennale, involves the recreation of a lithium battery factory as a site-specific installation. This endeavor seamlessly extends the artist’s persistent exploration of themes of globalization, intricate trade networks, the nature of materials, and the dynamics of labor.

Canal Projects is a nonprofit, women-led contemporary art institution dedicated to supporting forward-thinking international artists at pivotal moments in their careers. Through production, exhibition, research and interpretation of this work they foster artistic practices that challenge and reflect the current moment.

Candice Lin has gained recognition for her innovative use of diverse materials: from tea and cactus tinctures to fungi and deceased bats—accentuating their unique characteristics, such as scents and flavors. Lin repurposes presentation techniques commonly linked with anthropology and natural history, investigating their colonial narratives. Her work has been exhibited at Portikus, Frankfurt (2018); Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2017); Bétonsalon—Center for Art and Research, Paris (2017); Human Resources, Los Angeles (2017); New Museum, New York (2017); SculptureCenter, Long Island City, New York (2017); Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (2016); and Vincent Price Art Museum, Los Angeles (2013), among others. She is the recipient of several residencies, grants, and fellowships, including a California Community Foundation Award (2014), Fine Arts Work Center Residency (2012), Frankfurter Kunstverein Deutsche Börse Residency (2010), and Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship (2009).
