Transforming space and sensory environment through motion, light and sound is the challenge that the artist Gabey Tjon a Tham has taken on. The starting point of her installations is nature, of which she tries to grasp the fundamental behaviours. Her work explores the relationships between humans, nature and technology. Conflicts, harmony and unpredictable processes are her subjects of choice. The artist develops unprecedented techniques and mechanisms, embedding different materials that perform at various poetic levels. Gabey Tjon a Tham's installations demand patience and attentiveness from viewers, who will in turn be rewarded with the immersive nature of her works' constant evolution, extending an invitation to question and investigate how the world touches us.
))))) repetition at my distance
Gabey Tjon a Tham will present ))))) repetition at my distance, a monumental kinetic/light/sound installation that is based on a subjective interpretation of sound travelling through space. The electric wires behave like a living entity of individuals that respond to different forces, impulses that set them in motion. Then begins organic choreographies, gestures shifting back and forth between the natural and the robotic. The hypnotic installation reconstructs architecture through a composition of light, movement and sound. But enough speaking for now, let's save some of this experience's magic.
