Fiona Tan

The Amsterdam-based video and film artist Fiona Tan (Pekan Baru, ID, 1966) has won worldwide acclaim as a leading contemporary artist since the 1990s. Her work, which has been showcased at numerous biennials and in diverse other international exhibition contexts, charts voyages through space and time, through contemporary and historic visual universes.

The Museum der Moderne Salzburg and Kunsthalle Krems mount Fiona Tan’s first mid-career retrospective. Spanning her output of the past twenty years, the presentation is divided into two virtually concurrent exhibitions at the two museums. Its title, Mit der anderen Hand/With the other hand, refers to a melancholy entry in Franz Kafka’s diary about the sensitive outsider whose very inability to bear life makes him an alert chronicler and prolific memoirist of his time.

For a new work on film commissioned for the exhibition at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg, Gray Glass, Fiona Tan shot material in the Alps around Salzburg: on the glaciers at Hoher Sonnblick and in the Eisriesenwelt cave system in Werfen.
