Kenneth G S Tan

Kenneth Tan’s works concern the Old and New, Order and Rebellion, Push and Pull, Craft and Arts. These are dualism processes that are complementary to the energy in this universe. Most of the work is to open a dialogue with the audience as silent. This conversation is as silent as discreet, but there is a rebellious message within the silence.

As a Malaysian-born Chinese living in a foreign land, Tan’s studio practice is rooted in exploring culture and identity issues. Tan is overly self-conscious, questioning him "self" and who surrounds him. It is a complex presentation issue, either norm or 'otherness' in any aspect of life.

Due to this fundamental objective, the outcome of most of his work is the least important compared to the "process of creating." Each stroke of ink, or paint, is not merely a mark; it layered a collective of information and meaning of the identities.

The exhibition will remain on display through October 29.
