Writer and artist Himali Singh Soin works with language, performance, sound and film. Based between London and Delhi, Singh Soin’s poetic storytelling often begins with sublime and unfathomable forces, yet grounds us in the political realities of the now. From mountains to glaciers, telecommunications to celestial powers, we come to reflect on borders and imperialism, justice and survival.
Himali Singh Soin’s recent and upcoming group shows include Serpentine Park Nights, Somerset House and Mimosa House, London; Migros Museum, Zurich; Yarat Contemporary, Baku; Gropius Bau, Berlin and Dhaka Art Summit among others. Her art writing appears regularly in Artforum, among others. She is the recipient of the 2019 Frieze Artist Award for we are opposite like that, a short film on the Victorian fear of glaciation and her eponymous book on the poles and their uncanny bearing on the rest of the world is forthcoming post-lockdown.
