Sharon Chin

Sharon Chin (b.1980, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia) is an artist and writer living in Port Dickson, Malaysia. She makes all kinds of things in all kinds of places, from galleries to city sidewalks. She's hung sails across an embassy lobby, listened to strangers' hearts on the streets of Sydney, and gotten teargassed while wearing a costume of yellow flowers. Recently, she bathed in public with a hundred people for «Mandi Bunga/Flower Bath», a project at Singapore Biennale 2013, and painted weeds on political party flags for the 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (2015) in Queensland, Australia. She is also known for her graphic journalism, notably 'In The Land that Never Was Dry', a series of illustrated essays about water issues in Malaysia.
