Hiding in Plain Sight: Sharon Chin

For the first event in our Hiding in Plain Sight programme, we invited Malaysia-based artist Sharon Chin to speak about her recent projects, with a starting point of her work Creatures on the Move (In the Death of the Night) (2022). This work is a series of photographs of shadow puppets, lit solely by the flare of Hengyuan Refinery in Port Dickson, Malaysia. Chin’s home is located 200m from the fence. This work has taken many forms – as linocuts, placards, and wheatpaste posters. Chin asks: without darkness, how can we dream of the day?
