Sin Wai Kin – ‘I want people to exist in my world’ | Turner Prize Nominee 2022 | Tate

Explore the universe of artist Sin Wai Kin, populated by a cast of characters who challenge binary ways of thinking.

Sin’s practice pivots around the use of speculative fiction within performance, moving image, writing and print, to question the idealised image and the collective gaze. Identifying as mixed race and non-binary, their work creates fantasy narratives, to interrupt normative processes around issues of desire, identification, and objectification. Sin’s use of performance and particularly drag began as a means of deconstructing and challenging misogyny and racism in and outside of the queer community.

Sin Wai Kin is nominated for the Turner Prize 2022. Find out more about the Prize and the exhibition at Tate Liverpool:
