Kyrin Chen lives and works in London. 

Informed by their interdisciplinary theoretical framework, Chen’s practice seeks to explore the spatial ‘dialogue’ between body and site through attentive auditory and haptic perception in various media, including interactive games, printmaking, fiction, physical workshops/performances, multi-media installation and beyond.

Chen’s works interrogates the tension between supposed dichotomies, exploring the spaces between belonging and dislocation, intimacy and alienation.

In the course of searching for alternative modes of communication, Chen isolates and recontextualize familiar sounds, creating new meanings through reconstruction and recomposition, experimenting with the sonic materiality of everyday objects. Responding to architectural spaces, Chen uses small objects to create quiet, delicately textured sounds. A sense of fragility is further expressed through their drawings and etchings.
