@kaisyngtan www.kaisyngtan.com [email protected] Dr Kai Syng Tan FRSA SFHEA is an artist whose artistic and curatorial practice, teaching, writing and research straddle within, between and beyond the art and academic worlds. Known for her 'eclectic style and cheeky attitude' (Sydney Morning Herald), 'radical interdisciplinarity' (Dr Alan Latham, UCL), her installation, film, text and performances have appeared at Documenta, Royal Geographical Society, Biennale of Sydney, MOMA, ZKM, ICA and LADA Study Guide. Recognition includes San Francisco International Film Festival Golden Gate Award and Artangle Open 100, and collections include the Museum of London and Fukuoka Art Museum. Since 2014 Kai is known as someone 'instrumental in the UK and lots of other contexts' 'to start to form what might become to be called "Running Studies"' (Professor Gregg Whelan 2015). Of her RUN! RUN! RUN! Biennale, the Guardian urges academics to 'take a leaf out of its book' (2014), and she was heard on BBC Radio 3 on running as an artistic discourse (Free Thinking January 2017). Co-created with disabled colleagues, the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 8th ASEAN Para Games (for which Kai was Visual Director) was applauded by the Singapore Prime Minister as 'spectacular'. Kai completed her PhD at the Slade School of Fine Art as a UCL scholar, and has taught in the practice, history and theory of fine art, media art, film and art education in higher institutions in Australia, Singapore, Tokyo and London. Currently Visiting Researcher and first Artist in Residence at the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry (SGDP) at King's College London, Kai is working on an Unlimited commission funded by Arts Council England that explores mind wandering. She is also Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Mobilities Research at Lancaster University and UCL Institute of Advanced Studies, as well as Director of RUN! RUN! RUN! International Body for Research and RUN! RUN! RUN! Biennale, and Arts and Humanities Research Council Peer Review College member. RUN! RUN! RUN!
