Sean Cham 曾繁杨 (he/him) is a researcher and artist who engages in questions of histories, memories, and the consumption and production of both.
He is pursuing a PhD in History of Art, on a Collaborative Doctoral Partnership between London’s National Gallery and Birkbeck, University of London. His doctoral work is interested in museum studies, gaps in the archives, and colonial legacies. He has also worked on projects surrounding heritage studies, conservation, and social history.
In his artistic practice, he works at the intersections of photography, performance, and installation. His interdisciplinary and critical practice is concerned with histories and built environments; particularly considering ideas around authorship, contestation, gaps, and migration. Cham’s works were exhibited in Ethiopia, Germany, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, and Sweden. His works had been commissioned by M1 Singapore Fringe Festival, The Future of Our Pasts Festival, and NUS Centre For the Arts.
