Tan Kian Ming (KIAN) was born in Malaysia in 1991 and graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London (M.F.A in Fine Arts) in 2020. In his work, Kian examines the interplay between folk customs and contemporary religious issues through installation, video and painting. His long-term practices are a series of rubbing project works with various ancient tombstones, and war monuments which delve into personal and collective memories; probing postcolonial condition, immigration and the ambiguous position of the Chinese diaspora. His works poetically deal with the reconstruction of monumental spatiality, home, and displacement.
