Fiona Tan’s relaxing brilliance, “lazing on the pleasant side of boredom”

The exhibition marks a new trajectory for the artist and documents this important stage in Tan’s career. Although much of Tan’s earlier work focused on the use of found archival images, her recent projects involve the use of actors and location shooting. The works address her long-standing interest in the documentary image, both personal and public, and the role of memory and forgetting in the construction of identity. These ideas are represented in works that range in size and media, from framed photographs and drawings to monitor-scaled digital installations and theatrically-scaled projections.
