Straddling the lines of assimilation, refuge, and self-preservation, Denisse Griselda’s current work interrogates the boundaries of representation by publicly engaging with memory. She invites her audience to witness her attempt to activate her memories through ritual reflections to the past. Denisse is dedicated to investigating how to archive marginalized histories poised between fiction and reality; the histories that are manufactured as (in)visible, which lend themselves to their representation and mystification.

Denisse Griselda Reyes is a performance artist, animator, and filmmaker working in New York, NY. She graduated from Wesleyan University in 2015 with a BA in Art History. Currently, she is completing her MFA in Visual Arts at Columbia University.
