Takt Academy is happy to present
TAKT TALK BATTLE
(two artist talks- one evening)
with Sandy Leong and Denisse Griselda
Sandy LEONG SIN U is an illustrator and visual artist. Born in Macau, she studied BA and MA degrees in Beijing and Hong Kong. Since 2017, Sandy has been undertaking the MA Visual Communication programme at the Royal College of Art (London). In recent years her practice has been exploring studies of personal history and collective memories. After finding, by chance, a photo taken of her grandmother and mother she traced her female family members’ personal histories. In doing so, she realized that their personal histories were somehow also relevant to the wider picture of their country’s stories, such as Chinese migration history and the Cultural Revolution, as well as to cultural identities of colony. These insights inspired a series of work to reflect the relationships between generations in her family.
Denisse Griselda is an artist and historian based in Brooklyn, NY. Straddling the lines of assimilation, refuge, and self-preservation, Denisse Griselda’s current work interrogates the boundaries of representation by publicly engaging with memory. Using rotoscoping as an obsessive technique, she performs the ritual reflection to the past, while inviting an audience to witness her attempt to suspend her memories in time. Denisse is dedicated to investigating how to archive marginalized histories poised between fiction and reality, the histories that are manufactured as (in)visible, which lend themselves to their representation and mystification.
