Hans Tan

Hans Tan

Born: 1980

Hometown: Singapore

Lives and Works: Singapore

 

Tiptoeing on the boundaries between design and art, Hans deploys design as medium in his practice, making use of utility as a pretext to comment on design and its industry as a phenomenon. He has particular interest in developing materials and processes, especially in the context of heritage, consumption, and waste.

He has been included in exhibitions such as "Singletown" at the Venice Biennale, "Surface art/design" in Dortmund and Cologne, "No Boundaries" at ArtStage Singapore, and "Beauty" at the Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial, Smithsonian Design Museum New York. His work, Spotted Nyonya, was awarded with the distinction of "Les Découvertes" at the fall edition of Maison et Objet 2012 in Paris. He is a two-time winner of Design of the Year at the President's Design Award, Singapore's highest design accolade, and his works are held in private collections, as well as public permanent collections at the National Collection of Singapore; M+ Museum for Visual Culture, Hong Kong; and the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, New York.
