For the 4th editions of The Rising (1st - 15th October 2018) we will be teaming up with Live Art UK’s Diverse Actions initiative again to extend & expand the opportunity available to artists. This Rising will include two week's studio residency to develop artistic practice, professional development sessions with guest lectures and a platform event. 


The Rising gives selected artists the time, space and required resources to try out new work and explore the edges of their craft. Don't miss this opportunity to witness the new comers of contemporary performance art.

Lena Chen

Lena Chen (b. 1987, San Francisco) is an artist and writer exploring intimacy, labor, trauma, and women’s identity. Her practice encompasses participatory art, durational performance, confessional texts and poetry, and interactive installations. Experimenting with her body and biography as primary media, her works function as exercises in vulnerability by confronting the thin line between victimhood and survival, connection and isolation, empowerment and objectification.
