Aki Hassan is a Singaporean visual artist, whose work is concerned by the varying forms of dependencies evolved within trans* kinships and solidarity. Primarily working through sculptural installation 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.
