Description

Details

The lovingly bound catalogue to an exhibition of Fiona Tan’s work at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, curated by Hiromi Kurosawa, ‘Ellipsis’ revisits both earlier and more recent work by the artist, whose oeuvre expresses her identification as a symbol for multicultural lives, and discerns a multilayered complexity within herself that is rooted in various histories. Using montage and restructuring, her fragmentary images are imbued with the ambiguities of memory, failing to convey true meaning or facts, and lead viewers to speculate upon the narratives buried therein. With essays by Kurosawa and Okwui Enwezor, plus images and installation views.
