Artist Fiona Tan (b. 1966) was born in Indonesia and grew up in Australia. She has lived and worked in Amsterdam since 1988. For the Rijksmuseum she made the installation Provenance.
“For this commission I looked at the 17th-century portraits in the Rijksmuseum collection. I find the most interesting paintings of this period are portraits in which the subjects are painted in a completely ordinary, honest and plain way. I immersed myself in their history, and what I noticed was how tangible the past is in a city like Amsterdam: the buildings, the street names, even the names and appearance of friends.

For the first time it will take place in Italy and will stretch across an entire regional territory – one hundred and fifty kilometres of crossroads of different cultures and intersecting traditions, rich in historical monuments and in sites of industrial archeology. It involves four cities which together create a single connecting route along the Brenner axis between the north and south of Europe: Fortezza (Bressanone), ex-Alumix factory in Bolzano, the Palazzo delle Poste in Trento, Manifattura Tabacchi and ex-Peterlini factory in Rovereto.
