Minstrel Kuik

Minstrel Kuik (b. 1976, Malaysia), a Chinese Malaysian, was born in Pantai Remis in 1976. After a bachelor degree in fine art in Taiwan, she obtained her master degree in photography in Arles, France. As a social actor, Kuik continues to experience different tensions coming from the clash between institutions, social bounds, identities and interests. These experiences are foregrounded in Kuik’s perception of the world and her relationship with the authority, and subsequently shaped her work, in which she believes the personal space is the major battlefield of ideological, political and economic interests. Her recent work focuses on the negotiation between the collective and the individual, and place as a field of personal intervention.
