Himali Singh Soin (born in Delhi, lives and works in London and India) works across text, performance and moving image. She utilizes metaphors from the natural environment to construct speculative cosmologies that reveal non-linear entanglements between human and non-human life. Her poetic methodology explores the myriad technologies of knowing, from scientific to intuitional, indigenous and alchemical processes. Her inspirations include the ancient Stoics and contemporary literature, travel diaries and ancient diagrams. In the face of extinction, her work insists on resurgence.
For Art Taaalkssss Himali Singh Soin will do a live performative reading of the poetic essay Healing from meteorites, that she and Alexis Rider originally published in the second issue of ART WORK Magazine in summer 2021.
Himali Singh Soin’s work has been shown internationally, from Khoj, Delhi; Somerset House, Mimosa House, Serpentine Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, London; Gropius Bau, EWERK, HKW, Berlin; Migros Museum, Zurich; Kadist, San Francisco; and the Shanghai Biennale. She was the recipient of the Frieze Artist Award 2019, part of the curatorial team of Momenta Biennale 2021 in Montréal and Writer-in-Residence at the Whitechapel Gallery in London (2020–2021).
