Kara CHIN was born in Singapore in 1994. ​Chin obtained her BA in Fine Art from The Slade School of Fine Art in 2018, and currently lives and works in Newcastle, UK. Her practices, spanning animation, ceramics, sculpture, and installation, attempt to unravel our relationship with technology that has assimilated into every corner of the quotidian life. Working with different materials from the organic to the synthetic or even ‘digital manifestations’, Chin reexamines perception and deception in the increasingly virtualized world. By interweaving imagined future scenarios with primitive and esoteric events, her work reflects upon the psychology behind biohacking, wellness culture, and transhumanism. With injections of humor delivered through unconventional materials, chaotic compositions, and bizarre fabrications, Chin explores how the present is haunted by the future.
