Gabey Tjon a Tham is an installation artist working with a variety of media and art forms. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts (Royal Academy of Art) and a Master’s degree in ArtScience (Royal Conservatoire of the Hague).
During her years in Fine Arts, her work developed from two-dimensionality towards interdisciplinary attitudes. During this time, she realized the potential of sound and site-specific installations to engage the audience in a given space.
Her work consists of re-contextualized excerpts from reality that acquire their form within an architectural space. In the midst of this dialogue, the perceiver is reverted to a process of contemplating about its own thoughts, memories and dreams. Within this spaceless and timeless sanctuary, the elements of the piece develop new relations to each other and their surroundings.
