Anthony Chin (b. 1969) lives and works between Singapore and Thailand. He previously worked in the field of industrial design, before travelling the region extensively to focus on visual arts. His field work and excursions eventually led him into creating immersive site-specific works that poetically and conceptually respond to the architectural presence and history of sites. His production process is a result of both extensive historical research, and the utilization of common materials to invoke particular places with attention to their geopolitical implications. Chin graduated from the Royal College of Art in the United Kingdom, and has participated and exhibited in various local and overseas art shows, including his first solo art show in Beijing’s 798 art district (MoShang Experimental Space), Residency and show at Taipei International Artsits Village and three editions of Singapore’s OH! OpenHouse.
