Artist, Non-Exec. Director, Holyhead Studios, Royal College of Art graduate, MA Printmaking, working primarily with found objects and images, performativity and narrative.

Denise Startin is an artist, writer, researcher and collector. Working primarily with found objects and images her practice is curatorial in approach. To take a curatorial approach is also to ‘take care’ in the restoration, conservation and curation of minor histories, narratives, texts, objects and images either discarded or forgotten, a continually recurring relation is the passage of ephemera between public and private realms. Denise reimagines and restores these often personal decontextualised objects into new narratives and new performative relations, inventing new histories. During this process a historical figure, site, place, event, voice or voices are adopted to activate the work and produce a narrative arc.

Denise seeks to address the relations between personal and collective archiving and memory-making by examining visual-cultural modalities of memory to perform its retrieval, survival, communication and recreation. This dialogue seeks to highlight the significance and complex character of visual and artefactual experiences in constructing and mediating broader narratives of cultural identity and belonging. She also explores these relations in critical and performance writing. Denise studied at the Royal College of Art and works across printmaking, photography and installation.
