About the Artist
Victoria Tan is a multidisciplinary artist based in Singapore. Her practice is informed by the investigation of time, history, and impermanence, particularly in observing the speed through which reality changes by capturing temporary zones such as construction sites, through various media.
Victoria received her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from LASALLE College of The Arts – Goldsmiths University of London and was the recipient of The Winston Oh Travel Research Award in 2016.
Construction sites are physical reminders of the cycles of change and destruction that happen in a city experiencing constant redevelopment. Using documentary as a tool for memory, From emptiness to everything and Leave me now, return tonight are two series that explore the placelessness of the construction site as part of our urban environment, taking into account its perpetually shifting nature in relation to the landscape.
