Grace Tan
A multi-disciplinary practitioner specializing in the area of wearable and spatial structures, Tan's experiments often blur the lines between design, art, and mathematics. Formally trained in fashion design, Tan began her art and design practice in 2003 under the kwodrent studio in which she presented a series of works based on the study of rectangles, materials, and construction methods. The series is defined and shaped by an intuitive and methodological working process where each piece of work is numbered and dated to form a chronological record of the series' development. In recent years, her works have evolved beyond wearable fabric pieces into complex site specific installations and spatial constructs, while retaining the core method-based working process.
