Aki Hassan

b. 1995, Singapore
Lives and works in Singapore

Aki Hassan is a Singaporean visual artist, whose work is concerned by the varying forms of dependencies evolved within transgender kinships and solidarity. Primarily working through sculptural installations and experimental comics, Aki speculates on nonbinary bodily (con)sequences, as they reflect on the present dilemmas with cultural and systemic forces. They see their practice as a tool to locate strengths, resistance, precarity and imbalances in exchange, whilst carefully disentangling normative imaginaries of support and care.

Aki completed a residency at Cutes / ظِراف with Samandal and Nino Bulling as part of ‘Documenta 15’ (2022) and SAM Art Residencies at Singapore Art Museum (2021/22). Notable exhibitions include; ‘RSA New Contemporaries’ (Royal Scottish Academy, 2022); ‘innate’ (Yeo Workshop, 2021); ‘An Exercise of Meaning in a Glitch Season’ (National Gallery Singapore, 2020); ‘Pig Rock Bothy Residency & Exhibition’ (Scottish Gallery of Modern Art, 2019); and ‘Show Me The Difference’ (Studio for an Art Lover, Glasgow 2019).
