Tattfoo Tan seeks an immediate, direct, and effective exploration of issues related to the individual in society, collapsing the categories of 'art' and 'life'. Through the employment of multiple forms of media and various platforms of presentation, Tattfoo promotes group participation including himself and audience. Engaging mind and body in actions that transform the making of art into a ritualized and shared experience, Tattfoo prefers to develop projects that are ephemeral and conceptual.
