Pixie Tan is a multidisciplinary art director and educator from Singapore. Between movement and placement, her body of work spans across moving images, graphic design, set design and fashion. The breadth of her work encourages her to take a collaborative approach towards a practice centred on the conditions of labour. Drawn to the human body and its gestures — the embodied possibilities of expression — in her work, she is interested in evoking an bodily presence that is greater than the sum of its parts.
