Citing Bar II – Himali SINGH SOIN
Following the group exhibition “Tides in the Body” in 2022 and a solo exhibition at Taipei Dangdai this year, Himali Singh Soin presents two recent important series of works in this exhibition: “we are opposite like that” and “As Great As What”, as a further exploration on the intersectionalities between contemporary healing, history and science fiction literature, and ecology.
Here at “Citing Bar” also showcases the poetry, sound, and publications that emerged from these two series. Through interdisciplinary approaches, the aim is to expand our understanding of non-linear and pluralistic alternative cosmologies. Translation, research, and participatory events will be unfolded throughout the exhibition.
Himali Singh Soin’s (b. 1987, New Delhi, lives and works between London and New Delhi) multidisciplinary work uses metaphors from the natural environment to construct speculative cosmologies that reveal non-linear entanglements between human and nonhuman life. Her poetic methodology explores the myriad technologies of knowing, from scientific to intuitional, Indigenous, and alchemical processes.
Soin’s major solo exhibitions include ‘The Third Pole’ at Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza (2022), and ‘Static Range’ at The Art Institute of Chicago (2022). She was the recipient of the Frieze Artist Award 2019. Her art has been shown at Khoj (Delhi), Mimosa House and Serpentine Galleries (London), Gropius Bau (Berlin), Anchorage Museum (Alaska), the Dhaka Art Summit, and the Shanghai Biennale, among others.
