Himali Singh Soin


Himali Singh Soin works across text, performance and moving image. She utilizes metaphors from the natural environment to construct speculative cosmologies that manifest the non-linear entanglements between human and non-human life. Her poetic methodology explores myriad ways of knowing, from scientific to intuitional, indigenous and alchemical epistemologies. Her works have been shown at Whitechapel Gallery, Institute of Contemporary Arts, Serpentine Marathon and Serpentine Galleries Park Nights, Art Licks, Art Night London (all London); Kadist, San Francisco; Dhaka Art Summit, Dhaka; Abrons Art Centre, New York City; Brick Bar, Riga; Serendipity Arts Festival, Goa; Khoj, New Delhi; Office for Contemporary Art Norway, Oslo; Fabrika, Moscow; A Tale of a Tub, Rotterdam; Bucharest Art Week, Bucharest; Meet Factory, Prague; among others. Her writing appears regularly in Artforum, among others. She is the recipient of the 2019 Frieze Artist Award for her work on the poles and their uncanny bearing on the rest of the world.
