Sin Wai Kin (fka Victoria Sin) was born in Toronto, Canada in 1991. They studied at Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London and the Royal College of Art, London.

Sin’s practice pivots around the use of speculative fiction within performance, moving image, writing and print, to question the idealised image and the collective gaze. Identifying as mixed race and non-binary, their work creates fantasy narratives, to interrupt normative processes around issues of desire, identification, and objectification. Sin’s use of performance and particularly drag began as a means of deconstructing and challenging misogyny and racism in and outside of the queer community.

Sin lives and works in London.

Turner Prize 2022 was at Tate Liverpool, 20 October 2022 – 19 March 2023.
