(b. 1988, Singapore)
Weixin Chong’s practice is drawn from fascination with the stylisation of natural elements, digital and organic memory systems and the relationship between surface and perceived superficiality. She sees these concerns as material metaphors for human social relationships and the psychology behind the structures and projections of power, value and desire.
Through printed surfaces and objects, she looks at the constant construction of imposed and composed realities,and reproductions that replace and represent. Interactions of the digital and the organic, and the effects and methods of reproducing and manipulating images across materials, are core to her practice.
Weixin Chong was born in Singapore and maintains an often mobile practice between Singapore and Madrid.
Having completed studies in both the Royal College of Art, London and Lasalle College of the Arts, Singapore, Chong has exhibited and worked in highly varied environments. She is a co-founder of independent platform soft/WALL/studs in Singapore and works on both solo and collaborative projects nomadically.
