Grace Tan

Singapore / FOST Gallery

Grace Tan (b.1979, Malaysia) began her practice in 2003 under the kwodrent series. Influenced by geometry, her works are distinguished by an intrinsic tactile nuance that heightens the matter and form. Tan’s new body of works presents various systems of arrangement, exploring the intrinsic relationship between the displayed objects and the display structures.

Tan has been commissioned by the Singapore Art Museum, The Esplanade and the Land Transport Authority of Singapore. She has also represented Singapore at Singapore Biennale 2013, Fukutake House/Setouchi Triennale 2013 (in collaboration with The Substation), Aichi World Expo 2005, Venice Architecture Biennale 2008, London Design Week 2006 and State of Design Melbourne 2008-2010. In 2012, Tan was awarded the distinguished President’s Design Award for Building as a Body and in 2013, she was conferred the Young Artist Award and nominated for the President’s Young Talents Award. Tan lives and works in Singapore.

Grace Tan will be presenting her works at FOST Gallery.
