Bess Chan

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Bess Chan is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Fine Art Honours at Central Saint Martins, University of Arts London. Her practice revolves around a continuous documentation of her constant shuffle between three places: being born in Singapore, brought up in Hong Kong, and studying in the United Kingdom ever since she was 15. Therefore her artistic interest lies in the uncertain nature of the concept of “home” and the ephemerality of contemporary life. Such feelings of temporality, displacement, disconnection and longing are expressed through painting, drawing, moving images, and photography. The resultant works portrays the subtle, quiet and deeply personal things in her immediate surroundings. Accumulated and archived through time, they in turn become self-portraits.
