You-I, the non-selves, performance, August 2021

Cherry Nin is a Philadelphia-based interdisciplinary artist working primarily in video with a practice that includes writing, performance, sound, and drawing. Play and the uncanny are central to their hybrid media practice which seeks to blur the fact/fiction binary while investigating societal violences and their effects on relationships between people and to the natural world. Dreamy, disjointed, hyper-real worlds emerge, where a host of wicked realities lie bubbling just below a cracked surface.

Nin is the founder of Krissy Talking Pictures, a queer video art organization in Philadelphia. They have lectured at institutions including The Wexner Center for the Arts, Haverford College, and University of Oxford (UK). They are a recipient of the Leeway Foundation's Art & Change Grant (2020) and the Philadelphia Independent Media Fund (2021), and are a past artist in residence at the Wexner Center for the Arts.
