Kyrin Chen is a recent graduate from Goldsmiths, MFA Fine Art. Chen work in various forms, including video essay, found footage, installation, documentary, and fiction. By exploring educational practices, migration and societal norms, my work focuses on globalised ideologies of discipline and agency through individual and collective subjects. My practice concerns the socio-political position of the artist, which is foregrounded by the use of translation and a mix of scripted and unscripted dialogues to engage with forms of mixed authorship.
