- Fiona Tan - English
How are memories preserved - in archives, in minds, in the landscape and on film? Visual artist and filmmaker Fiona Tan (1966, Indonesia) investigates ways in which time is recorded.
This publication focuses on her works Gray Glass (2020), Inventory (2012) and Footsteps (2022), key works in the homonymous exhibition at Eye Filmmuseum. Hanneke Grootenboer reflects on the way in which looking, thinking and time converge in Tan's work. In doing so, she places the oeuvre in a broad historical and philosophical context of visual culture. In an interview with Dana Linssen, Tan provides insight into her creative process and shares thoughts on exhibiting her work.
In addition, this sketchbook-like publication features texts and notes by the artist herself, which offer a valuable insight into her vision and working method. The works are lavishly illustrated with installation photos, film stills and behind- the-scenes photography. Finally, the full text of the works Brendan's Isle (2010) and Island (2008) is included.
