In her works, the photographer, video artist and filmmaker Fiona Tan (1966 Pekanbaru, ID) dedicates herself to the themes of time, history and memory. Looking at ourselves and others are central themes in her video installations and photography. Decisive for the confrontation with identity and cultural character is her own biography. Tan was born in Indonesia as a child of Sino-Australian parents, grew up in Australia and now lives in the Netherlands. The exhibition Fiona Tan. Mit der anderen Hand / With the other hand at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg and Kunsthalle Krems, which will run almost concurrently, is the first comprehensive mid-career retrospective of Fiona Tan. The institutions present a diverse selection of works, each with seven to eight video installations and a new work by Fiona Tan. For her latest work, Gray Glass, commissioned by the Museum der Moderne Salzburg and being shown here for the first time, Tan filmed on the Hoher Sonnblick peak and glaciers and inside the ice caves of the Eisriesenwelt at Werfen.
The exhibition is presented in cooperation with Kunsthalle Krems, which shows Fiona Tan's works from November 21, 2020—February 14, 2021.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication in German and English.
