Preservationists Fight To Save Forgotten French Castle Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers These days it seems like castles only exist in storybooks and Disney movies. What happened to the foreboding dwellings of our wealthiest ancestors? The truth of the matter is, while there are still many castles in Europe and a few in the United States, many have fallen into disrepair and ruin over time. However, in the Poitou-Charentes region of France, a group of preservationists are trying to save a 13th century castle that is slowly being reclaimed by nature. The story behind the abandoned property is just as fascinating as what’s left standing today.

Hung-Hsin Lin: Lost Inside Hung-Hsin Lin (林宏信) was born in Yunlin, Taiwan in 1975. He received his MFA from the National Taiwan University of Arts. Before being a full-time artist, Lin had been working as an advertising designer for almost 15 years. He borrows the character “flâneur” from Walter Benjamin’s (1892-1940) works as the main subject in his works. With the face painted with white powder & the costume corresponding to the environment. The “flâneur” in Lin’s paintings is a complicated self-reflection of the artist. Through these portraits in various sizes, Lin attempts to challenge viewers’ visual experience & the way they see a painting.   Facebook | Twitter via: Liang Gallery (Taipei, Taiwan) More art from around the world on Cross Connect’s Facebook .
