Susanna Tan, born in 1992, is an artist
and aspiring writer in an endeavour to investigate and narrate the occurrences of love, disappointment, regrets and loss. Her floristic alter-ego on the relevance and relationship of humans and plants can be found on 花花世界 (Fah Fah Sai Gai) www.fahfahsaigai.com
Susanna graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts(Hons) and is the inaugural recipient of the TCC-LASALLE Artist-Curator Alumni Award. Her recent exhibition includes a mural painted for Art Walk Little India 2019 and a group exhibition in Jendela, Esplanade.
Strange Plants stems from the artist’s practice and research on the relationship between plants and humans. Devoid of an emotive face, plants are common metaphorical devices used in the history of art. With the heightened ability as representational strategies, plants serve as great repository for stories, emotions and state of mind. These strange plants are planted on the wall here hoping to bring along a light-hearted joy and surprise for passer-bys to remember.
