Minstrel Kuik

Minstrel Kuik (b. 1976, Malaysia), is a Chinese Malaysian born in Pantai Remis in 1976. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in Taiwan, she obtained her master’s degree in photography in Arles, France. As a social actor, Kuik continues to undergo tensions coming from different ideologies, social bounds, identities and interests. Not only these daily experiences help position herself between the political society and the authorities, they also shape her artistic practice. With a belief that the private space is the major battlefield of ideological, political and economic interests, she explores art as a historical trajectory where the personal mutation through the process of reading, thinking, making and revisiting is traceable and reflective, and hopefully, transformative.

Her awards include the Regional Winner of one-month Fukuoka Asian Art Museum residency (2015); Winner of the UOB Painting of the Year (2014) for the Established Artist Category, Malaysia; Winner of the International Photographer Award (2013), Higashikawa Photo Festival Japan. Public collections include: the Michelangelo and Lourdes Samson Collection, Singapore Art Museum (SAM), Higashikawa International Photo Festival (Japan), United Overseas Bank (Singapore).
