Description

Sim Chi Yin’s work combines deep research with intimate storytelling. She explores history, memory, conflict and migration using photography, film, sound, text and archival material, in a multidisciplinary practice. Speaking of this practice, Yin says “The magic in the intersection of time, light, life — and fate — still fascinates me, but I’m asking myself: whose truth is it, whose reality, whose fragile memories?” Pictured here, two anorak-clad hikers bow their heads against the rain as they make their way up a path on Mount Lushan.
