Himali Singh Soin: Winner of the 2019 Frieze Artist Award

Himali Singh Soin works across text, performance and moving image, using the natural environment as a metaphor for speculative cosmologies, revealing entanglements between human and non-human life. Singh Soin’s winning proposal builds on her ongoing research project into remote areas of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. Entitled ‘we are opposite like that’, the series creates fictional myths for places that lack indigenous communities and legends of their own. Soin tells their stories from the non-human perspective of a melting fossil – ice – that has witnessed historic changes throughout time.

Singh Soin performed at the Serpentine Galleries (London) on 12 July 2019, as part of Jakob Kudsk Steensen: The Deep Listener in the COS x Serpentine Park Nights series 2019.
