Tattfoo Tan’s art practice seeks to find an immediate, direct, and effective way of exploring issues related to the individual in society through which to collapse the categories of ‘art’ and ‘life’ into one. Through the employment of multiple forms of media and various platforms of presentation, Tattfoo promotes group participation between himself and an ‘audience’. Within this collaborative practice both minds and bodies are engaged in actions that transform the making of art into a ritualized and shared experience. In keeping with the spirit of this transformative act, Tattfoo prefers to develop projects that are ephemeral and conceptual in nature.
In the fall in 2012, Tattfoo came to 601 Tully to begin work on his next piece of public art and intervention. in collaboration with 601, Nojaim Bros. Market, St. Josephs Hospital, and Seymour Dual Language Academy, Tattfoo will create a permanent installation using his Nature matching System, a graphical language addressing urban nutrition and Sustainable Organic Stewardship. During his visits, Tattfoo has lectured at several local schools and has also helped us jazz up our garden and compost.
