»Everything looks strange and new«

This is what Laura Cumming writes in her review in »The Guardian« (18/11/2018). Fiona Tan has occupied a pivotal position with­in contemporary art since the late 1990s; her ­moving-image and photographic artworks ­familiar from many key international biennials and exhibitions. Tan explores history and time and our place within them, working within the contested territory of representation. Deeply embedded in all of Fiona Tan’s work is her ­fas­cination with the mutability of identity, the ­de­ceptive nature of representation and the play of memory across time and space in a world ­increasingly shaped by global culture. Both books mark the occasion of Fiona Tan’s first extensive mid-career retros­pective, ­presented concurrently at the Museum der ­Moderne Salzburg and Kunsthalle Krems. The exhibition cata­logue, ­dis­cusses the works drawn from two decades shown across both ­venues, including the newly com­missioned video works »Gray Glass« and »Pickpockets«.
