Sin Wai Kin lives and works in London, England. Working within performance, the moving image, and the written word, Sin employs drag practice to call into question the ways in which society and the media affect how gender is perceived and understood. Drawing closely on personal experience, they create heavily constructed, fantastical narratives interrupting these conventional modes of processing desire, identification, and objectification.
