Kristina Chan’s works are a culmination and accumulation into site specific history to depict socio-cultural entropic narratives. They explore the correlation between architecture and sculptural landscapes of derelict and disused spaces. She seek sites where the intersection between function and intention have fallen into decline and disrepair, where untold histories recount themselves, in all their brevity, satire, beauty, and collapse.
For Hidden Door 2017, Chan will create a print installation – monumental in scale – of the venue itself, to serve as homage to the once abandoned Leith Citadel Theatre: its resurrection from dereliction to once again take centre stage, both metaphorically and literally, to today’s emerging artists.
Kristina Chan wishes to thank The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation for its financial support in this project.
