With the other hand/Reader
Since emerging in the late 1990s, artist Fiona Tan has gained worldwide recognition for her moving-image and photographic artworks which investigate the contested realm of representation, exploring history and time as well as our place within them. Many of the world's finest art-writers have examined Tan's important work, from the late John Berger and Okwui Enwezor to Dawn Chan, Lynne Cooke, and Brian Dillon, among others. Edited by noted art historian and critic Gilda Williams, this volume gathers the key critical writings across the artist's essential works as explored through various lenses, including art history, postcolonial theory and film analysis. Catalog essays and exhibition reviews on individual works are set alongside Tan's own substantial body of writing.
This two-volume publication marks the occasion of Tan's first extensive mid-career retrospective, presented concurrently at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg and Kunsthalle Krems.
