In a previous life, Kin Chui found work in the camera and art department of independent film productions in Singapore. These days Kin aspires to be a cat, but occasionally masquerades as an artist, having been involved in a number of socially orientated art initiatives with an investment in emancipatory struggles.
He was part of a collaboration with the Tunisian collective Ahl Al Kahf in creating a communicative platform for individuals involved in the Sidi Bouzid Revolution in Tunisia, and co-organised the project Re-Emphasis, which consisted of a public installation and forum that addressed the subject of migrant and refugee rights within the EU for the cultural festival Wienwoche. He has shown works at exhibitions such as State of Motion, a site specific exhibition that retraces film histories of Singapore, as well as curating the exhibition, Fantasy Islands, that looks at the manifold relations between Batam and Singapore as part of the program of Singapore Art Week.
In the last years, he has been an active member of soft/WALL/studs, a self organised collaborative project that mobilises around acts of amplification, hosting, fugitivity, counter-rhythms, support, resource gathering, research, writing, pirating, game-making, collaboration, and maintenance.
