Artist duo Jin + Fan was established in 2019. Jin Qiaoer and Fan Bo, born in 1996 and 1995 respectively, both graduated from the University of Toronto, Canada in 2018 and acquired their MA degrees in Fine Art at UAL Chelsea College of Art, UK.

Enacting as a flâneur, through observing and experiencing the contemporary urban landscape and spectacle, Jin explores people’s relationship with their living spaces as well as the absurdity that lies in it. Fan’s interest in exploring the subjectivity of encountering images, texts and sounds, leads to his incorporation of fragmented storytelling associated with desire, obsession and retrospection. While keeping their individual practices ongoing, their collaboration features a series of exhibitions in their living room or a non-gallery space, with each exhibition accompanied by a zine (as exhibition catalogues or relevant publications) titled I Thought I Was Living with An Artist. Combining site-specific installations, performance, and time-based works, their works explore the potentiality of domestic spaces, experimenting with alternative states of living and ways of practicing art, pondering the “location” of artists in the contemporary art world.
