Nha San Collective - Sharon Chin


Sharon Chin was born in Kuala Lumpur in 1980, where she is now based. Working with text and sculpture especially in site-specific installations, her work looks at how we negotiate geography, history, human relations and language in the contemporary imagination. Recent forays into video and performance explore the possibilities of art as a communication strategy.

She has exhibited locally and abroad. Recently, she participated in Incheon Women’s Art Biennale 2009, as well as a 2-month residency in Sapporo under the Japan Foundation JENESYS programme. In addition to her art practice, she writes regularly on art for local and international publications. She is co-founder of ARTERI, a website dedicated to arts and culture in Malaysia and South East Asia.
