The "Manufracture Series: Bread, Steel, and Benjamin Moore" investigates the segregated yet inseparable relationships between manufacturing and artmaking within local settings in Brooklyn. Through collaboration with an Italian bakery in Bensonhurst, a Chinese steel fabrication shop in Sunset Park, and an artist and interior painter working in Brooklyn, Jia-Jen Lin attempts to re-fabricate the boundaries and to create an overlap between artmaking, which is conventionally considered sublimated and bound to aesthetic principles, and manufacturing, the processes of which are seldom seen.

A series of modular works composed of juxtaposed photographs, sculptures, a video documentation, and a live performance will be integrated into the final presentation.
