Sin Wai Kin (fka Victoria Sin) (b. 1991, Toronto) 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’s performances and works were shown in international exhibitions and programmes, including “British Art Show 9” (UK, 2021); “INFERNO” (ICA, London, 2020); “Today’s Top Stories” (Tank Museum, Shanghai, China, 2020); “Total Fabrication” (Works and Process, Guggenheim Museum, New York, USA, 2020); “Age of You” (MOCA, Toronto, Canada, 2019); “La vie des chose”, MOMENTA biennale de l’image (Montreal, Canada, 2019); “Kiss My Genders” (Hayward Gallery, London, UK, 2019); “Meetings on Art”, the 58th Venice Biennale (Venice, Italy, 2019); “Rising up in the infinite sky”, Sophia Al-Maria: BCE (Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK, 2019); “Do Disturb” (Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France, 2019); “PLANTSEX, General Ecology” (Serpentine Galleries, London, UK, 2019); “DRAG” (Hayward Gallery, London, UK, 2018); “The sky as an image, an image as a net” (Serpentine Park Nights, London, UK, 2018); “Swinging Out Over the Earth” (Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK, 2018); “Indifferent Idols” (Taipei Contemporary Art Center, Taipei, 2018); “We Share the Same Tears” (Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK, 2018); “Glitch Feminism” (ICA, London, UK, 2017); “TATE EXCHANGE: GENDER TALKS” (Tate Modern, London, UK, 2017).
