Tuesday 14 February from 18.00-19.00
As part of W139’s current exhibition, Dead Skin Cash, six artists are invited to react to the prompt “Who can afford to not sell their own skin?” by curating a playlist of visual and audio materials for this weekly screening program.
Jay Tan was born in London and moved to the Netherlands in 2008. They completed the MFA at the Piet Zwart Institute in 2010 and were a 2014/15 resident at the Rijksakademie. Based in Rotterdam, they make sculptures and installations, sometimes with video and sound, or other moving parts, often with a focus on domestic mechanics and decoration. They currently teach at the Masters of Artistic Research programme at KABK, Den Haag and the Fine Arts Dept at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam.
They have shown work at Tent, Rotterdam; the CACC, Paris; Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw; Ellen de Bruijne Projects and Gallerie van Gelder, Amsterdam; Futura, Prague; Kunstverein, Amsterdam; Vleeshal, Middleburg; the CAC, Vilnius; Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam; Hollybush Gardens, London; Kunstinstituut Melly, Rotterdam and RongWrong, Amsterdam.
