Sin Wai Kin

b. 1991, Toronto

Sin Wai Kin (fka Victoria Sin) is an artist using speculative fiction within performance, moving image, writing, and print to interrupt normative processes of desire, identification, and objectification. Sin uses drag as a practice of purposeful embodiment questioning the reification and ascription of ideal images within technologies of representation and systems of looking. Drawing from close personal encounters of looking and wanting, their work presents heavily constructed fantasy narratives on the often unsettling experience of the physical within the social body.

Sin is nominated for the Turner Prize 2022 and they will be presenting a solo exhibition at Fondazione Memmo, Rome, in 2023. Sin’s performances and works have been shown at international institutions including Channel, Somerset House, London (2022); ICA, Los Angeles (2022); The Guggenheim, New York (2022); The British Museum, London (2022); Shedhalle, Zurich (2021); “British Art Show 9” (2021); ICA, London (2020); Tank Museum, Shanghai (2020); MOCA, Toronto (2019); “MOMENTA biennale de l’image”, Montreal (2019); Hayward Gallery, London (2019); “Meetings on Art” in “The 58th Venice Biennale” (2019); Whitechapel Gallery, London (2019); “Do Disturb Festival” in Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2019); Serpentine Galleries, London (2019); Taipei Contemporary Art Center, Taipei (2018) and Tate Modern, London (2017).
