This event has ended.

Fiona Tan has earned a strong international reputation with installations that often incorporate archival film and photographic images crossing between both documentary and fictional form. Her work delicately probes the questions of how cultural differences, within groups and among individuals, are represented, and how these representations become fixed in memory.
In the first full-scale Fiona Tan retrospective to be shown in Tokyo, this exhibition features her early 16 mm film and analog video installations, her acclaimed works at the 2009 Venice Biennale Dutch Pavilion, other major works that reveal her ongoing development as an artist, and two of her early documentaries. Together, these reveal the world of Fiona Tan and the poetic and critical questions she poses about the essential nature of photography and film.
