Shen Xin (b.1990, Chengdu, China) lives and works in London and Amsterdam. Shen was awarded the BALTIC Artists’Award in 2017, and from 2018 to 2019, she participates in the prestigious residency program with Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam.
Shen’s practice engages with moving image and event through the scripted and the informative, examining the techniques and effects of how emotion, judgment, and ethic circulate through individual and collective subjects. By focusing on interpersonal complexity and political narratives, her films often aim to generate reflexiveness to dismantle dominant power structures.
