- DENISE KWAN
From Wales, Denise Kwan is a British Chinese woman and she is an artist, researcher and lecturer based in London. With a background in Fine Art Sculpture (University of Brighton) and MA Curating Contemporary Art (Royal College of Art), she is interested in material worlds and using experimental and creative methods to explore the lives of women.
Her project, ’Object-Stories of British Chinese women’ explores the journeys of diasporic Chinese women in the UK through their objects and art making. Across London, Denise worked with over 30 British Chinese women for one year. Women were invited to present an object of personal significance for an interview and participate in art workshops where they visually explored the inner affective lives of their possessions.
This project is a part of her doctoral research at the University of Westminster supervised and supported by Dr. Cangbai Wang and Dr. Gerda Wielander on the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities.
Thanks to the Language Acts and World Making, AHRC Open World Research Initiative who have financially supported this project.
Special gratitude and thanks goes to the Women’s Group at Haringey Chinese Centre and all the women in the project across the two generations who have shared their stories, wisdom and strength.
Thank you to Bethan Morgan (Graphics) and Sha Zhou (Translator) for their help in the making of the ‘Object-Stories’ website.
