Gabey Tjon a Tham (1988) is a multidisciplinary artist working and living in the Hague, The Netherlands. For her first solo exhibition in Stockholm, the artist transforms a yellow sea container into a site-specific sensory experience reflecting on ever-changing urban landscapes and complex properties between man-made, technology, and nature. The immersive installation consisting of kinetic light sculptures, a two-channel video, and a sound composition focuses on the harbor area and the water as a vibrant system with its own temporality where all agents have to adapt to different laws of nowadays unsteadiness.
