    About:
    Shen Xin (b.1990, Chengdu) is graduated from Slade School of Fine Art with a MFA in Fine Art in 2014. They practice on MiníSóta Makhóčhe, the land of the Dakhóta Oyáte, as well as in London, UK. Shen Xin creates moving image installations and performances that empower alternative histories, relations, and potentials between individuals and nation-states. They seek to create affirmative spaces of belonging that embrace polyphonic narratives and identities.

    Shen Xin’s most recent work, Brine Lake (A New Body), had premiered in Minds Rising, Spirits Tuning, Gwangju Biennale (2021), and had its North American premiere in their first US museum solo exhibition at Walker Art Center (2021). Their solo presentation of exhibitions, performances and screenings include Swiss Institute, New York (2022), Double Feature (Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, 2019), Synthetic Types (Stedelijk Museum, 2019), To Satiate (MadeIn Gallery, Shanghai, 2019), Warm Spell (ICA, London, 2018), half-sung, half-spoken (Serpentine Galleries, London, 2017), and At Home (Surplus Space, Wuhan, 2016). Their group exhibitions include Language is a River (MUMA, Melbourne, 2021), An Impulse to Turn (Inside Out Museum, Beijing, 2020), Sigg Prize (M+ Museum, Hong Kong, 2019), Afterimage (Lisson Gallery, London, 2019), and Songs for Sabotage (New Museum Triennial, New York, 2018). They received the BALTIC Artists’ Award (2017) and held the Rijksakademie residency in Amsterdam (2018-19).
