Sleep Walk, Sleep Talk
Suki Chan was born in Hong Kong and currently lives and works in London. 'Sleep Walk, Sleep Talk' draws on Chan's interest in how urban spaces get planned and her experiences of Hong Kong and Shanghai and the Westernization of the towns and villages on their periphery. Her practice combines light, moving image, electronics and sound within mixed-media installations to explore physical and psychological experiences of space through simple, repetitive and sometimes painstaking processes, abstracting familiar materials and objects, to create imaginary and uncanny narratives.
Chan graduated with a BA (Hons) from Goldsmiths College, London, 1999 and completed an MA in Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art, London, 2008. Chan has participated in solo and group shows, artist residencies and research projects in the UK and internationally including: El Tanque, Spain; Comme Ca Art, New York, USA; PKW, Singapore and Upriver Loft Arts Space, China. Recent shows include: Futuremap 08, David Roberts Art Foundation, London, 2008; Sequence and Repetition ll, Jerwood Space, London, 2007 and Reversing Horizons, Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art, China, 2007. Her work is in numerous publications, and public and private collections.
