Erika Tan is a British-based artist and curator whose work has evolved from an interest in anthropology and the moving image. Her work is often informed by specific cultural, geographical or physical contexts; exploring different media to create situations that excite, provoke, question, confront and invite comments from an audience. Her work has been exhibited as part of EAST International 2000 at Norwich Gallery; "Cities on the Move" at The Hayward Gallery and Touring London, an inIVA web project. She recently completed PIDGIN: interrupted transmission, a Film & Video Umbrella Commission which will tour as part of 'Incommunicado' a Hayward Touring show during 2003/2004. Current and future projects include a permanent work in the Forest of Dean sculpture trail, new work for 'Strangers to Ourselves' Hastings Museum and 'Science Fictions', The Esplanade, as part of an Earl Lu Gallery curated show for the Singapore Arts Festival 2003.
