MOSES TAN QIAN YI

Moses Tan (born 1986) is a Singaporean based artist who is interested in ideas revolving queer melancholia and resistance through poetic forms. Employing drawing, sound, video and installation in works, he hopes to create pockets of experiences for viewers. Referencing ideas from Karen Barad and Judith Butler, his research deals with notions of shame, melancholia and the political undertones of these affects while also attempting to expand on ideas of understanding of sexuality. Currently an adjunct faculty with LASALLE College of the Arts, he holds a Bachelors in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts, a Bachelors in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry from Nanyang Technological University and is the recipient of the LASALLE Award of Academic Excellence 2016, Winston Oh Travel Research Award 2016 and the Noise Singapore Award for Art and Design in 2014. He has also exhibited in The Substation, Sabanci University and recently in Indiana University as part of Videotage’s cross campus exhibition.
