Denise Hawrysio was born in Toronto and currently lives in London, UK.
She received her BFA from Queen’s University, Canada, and her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. She works in a variety of media including site-specific installation and print and has exhibited her work throughout Europe, the United States and Canada.She has been an active member of London’s art scene for several years, founding her own project space in the early 90’s, working collectively with many of Britain leading artists. Her work has been recently reviewed and sited as one of the most historically significant exhibitions in London and last year her installation bought a new aesthetic sensibility in art practice by attempting to redefine authorship and objecthood in art.

Her installation for RACA deals with issues of displacement, hybridism,
transience and mutation, utopia and dystopia, memory and identity.
