Observingarts: Fiona Tan at The Museum of Contemporary Art, opening on 25th of September, Oslo
Fiona Tan, "Vox Populi Tokyo", (2007)
The touring exhibition “Fiona Tan. Geography of Time” was initiated by the National Museum. It will be shown first at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo from 25 September 2015 to 31 January 2016, before going on to Mudam Luxembourg in spring 2016, the MMK Museum für moderne Kunst in Frankfurt am Main, and finally the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
Fiona Tan expresses herself in a richly visual language at the intersection between the documentary and literary genres. This exhibition explores fundamental questions about the nature of identity and how individuals live with the past and memories in everyday life. Tan’s recently completed projects Diptych (2006–2011) and Vox Populi (2004–2012) feature as key works in the exhibition.
