  • Biography

    Anthony Chin T W (born 1969) is a designer turned visual artist who holds an MA in Industrial Design from the Royal College of Art in London. He creates site-specific and responsive artworks that poetically and conceptually respond to a given site's architectural presence and history. His works emerge from a process of extensive research, using common materials to invoke particular places with attention to their power structure and related implications. His interest lies in making visible inherent structures of power and hegemony that undergirds our daily existence, from the levels of individuals and nation states, so as to challenge prevailing narratives of life and social organisation under colonial and post-colonial eras.

    His works have been showcased at Singapore Art Museum, Beijing’s 798 art district (MoShang Experimental Space), Taipei International Artist Village and Metropolitan Museum of Manila, where he also undergone residencies at, Comma Space and was part of four editions of Singapore’s OH! Open House. Anthony is also part of NTU CCA Singapore Residencies Programme (Sep '23 – Jan'24).

    Anthony works and lives in Singapore and Thailand .

    Artist statement

    I am drawn to issues of power that challenges our collective existence, in part as a response to being on a tiny island city state. Through extensive research, I am keen in crystalizing observations and transforming and/or playing with discovered information, to create a form of artistic intervention.
