Sin Wai Kin — 2023 Baloise Art Prize

The exhibition unfolds around the series Portraits (2023), for which Sin Wai Kin (b. 1991, Toronto) recently won the 24th Baloise Art Prize, awarded during Art Basel 2023. Four works from this series have been acquired by Mudam as a result. These video portraits feature the artist who, through the use of sophisticated make-up and costumes, portrays characters referencing iconic artworks. The embodiment of fantasy is central to Sin Wai Kin’s practice, influenced by Traditional Chinese dramaturgy, drag and science fiction. Through their work, the artist surpasses gendered and normative approaches to identity, drawing attention to the construction of the physical within the social body.


Sin Wai Kin (b. 1991, Toronto) has held solo exhibitions and performances at Fondazione Memmo, Rome (2023); Somerset House, London (2022); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2022); Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb (2020) and Taipei Contemporary Art Centre, Taipei (2018). Their work has been presented within significant group surveys, including at the Doosan Art Center, Seoul (2022); Tate Liverpool, Liverpool (2022); ICA, Los Angeles (2022); Shedhalle, Zurich (2021); Jameel Arts Centre, Dubai (2021) and Hayward Gallery, London (2019). Their work is held in several major collections, including those of the British Museum - Prints and Drawings Department, London; Buffalo AKG Art Museum, New York and M+ Museum, Hong Kong. Sin Wai Kin lives and works in London.
