Denise Kum: Breathe Residency

Denise Kum: Breathe Residency

22 June – 20 September 2004

Open Studio – 9 September

Denise Kum’s practise revolves around sculpture and installation, sometimes using digital images and video. Denise’s interest lies in materials that are fluid in nature such as plastics, chemicals, oils and industrial by-products. Through these, she creates her own ersatz chemistry set, exploring ideas of virulence, dysfunctionality and representation.  Denise is interested in using her Breathe residency to work with local manufacturers to create components and source materials. This element is of particular interest to Denise given Manchester’s history as a manufacturing centre.  The materials will come together to create a major walk through sensory/tactile installation and environment created around the notion of additives – the smells inherent in cleaning products and disinfectants, the artificial colour injected in plastic and the flavours of confectionary.
