Candice Lin | Pigs and Poison
Spike Island, Bristol, Reino Unido
Pigs and Poison
A major new commission by LA-based artist Candice Lin that expands her ongoing research into marginalised histories, colonial legacies and the materials that link them. Combining materials as diverse as opium poppy, bone black pigment and lard, the exhibition weaves together wide-ranging stories of migration, biological warfare, and British and American colonial relationships with China to explore how Asian people have often been defined in relationship to animality, contagion, and the inhuman.  Lin traces how these definitions have subsequently influenced constructions of whiteness and citizenship in the United States.
