Sarah Isabelle Tan – S.E.A. Focus

Sarah Isabelle Tan

Singapore / Sullivan+Strumpf

Sarah Isabelle Tan is a visual artist whose practice delves into the ontology of being and time, navigating between nuances of the tangible and intangible. She is particularly interested in the traces and (re)representation of the temporalities of things. Her work explores personal encounters of loss, memory, fleeting moments, and a longing to possess what is always beyond reach. Ultimately they attempt to comprehend and perceive the indexical nature of presence and absence- a perpetual process of becoming. 

The series of work presented for S.E.A Focus is a contemplation of the melancholy revolving around the transience of corporeal objects by way of its process and material traces.
