Sim Chi Yin’s work combines deep research with intimate storytelling. Drawn to far-reaching themes, Chi Yin has explored varied stories: from the anti-colonial resistance in British Malaya, to the threat of nuclear weaponry, to the damage being caused by the global sand trade. Chi Yin explores history, memory, conflict and migration using photography, film, sound, text and archival material, in a multidisciplinary approach.

The sprawling megacity, situated at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers, is said to be the fastest-growing urban area in the world.
