Newcastle & Gateshead
Works have explored the extremities of transhumanist ideologies, biohacking, and ecological disaster, and how these exacerbate a haunting of the present by the future. Chin delivers these subjects with injections of humour, bizarre narratives and chaotic configurations. She combines a variety of materials, audio-visual media, organic and synthetic matter, and animatronics
Chin lives and works in Newcastle, UK. She holds a BA in Fine Art from The Slade School of Fine Art (2018). She was featured in Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018, and has been awarded the Woon Foundation Painting and Sculpture Prize (2018); The Duveen Travel Scholarship, UCL (2018); The Alfred W Rich Prize, Slade (2017); Max Werner Drawing Prize, Slade (2015).
