La galerie de la Biennale

Well known for his large-scale ornamental ventures, Michael Lin – who did the first-ever Sucrière facade for the 2005 Biennale – designs his works primarily as spaces for potential encounters. For this year’s Biennale he is contributing "What a Difference a Day Made", an installation including music, video and performance within a highly specific "time capsule": a hardware store in Shanghai whose entire stock he purchased. Once catalogued and arranged according to colour, shape and use, as in a natural history museum, these formally distinctive objects were placed in wooden boxes, generating a hybrid environment which raises questions to do with memory, roaming, meditation and nostalgia. As he makes his way through the work, the viewer also sees a number of videos showing a juggler – juggling being very popular in China – filmed during the first presentation of the work. "What a Difference a Day Made" reminds us that the modest everyday existence of an obscure shop is also part of our collective memory – and something maybe capable of becoming a work of art in its own right.

With the support of the Council for Cultural Affairs, Taiwan and the Taiwan Cultural Centre, Paris.
