Geography of Time
17 February — 24 June 2017
Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv
Artist Talk: Friday 17 February, 12pm
This exhibition is chronologically situated between May You Live in Interesting Times (1997), Fiona Tan’s early autobiographical film, and Nellie (2013), a portrait of Cornelia van Rijn, Rembrandt’s illegitimate daughter, who emigrated from Amsterdam to Indonesia at the age of 16. Comprised of four major video installations by the artist, including Lapse of Memory (2007) and Diptych (2006 -11), the exhibition explores relationships between the still image, moving image and sound, as well as their spatial and architectural dimensions.
De Pont Museum, Tilburg
11 February – 11 June 2017
As part of De Pont Museum’s 25th anniversary celebrations Fiona Tan has been invited to exhibit in the newly renovated and extended museum. Centered on Tan’s 2016 audiovisual and photographic installation Ascent, the new solo exhibition also includes work by the artist from the past decade, as well as several new pieces.
International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR)

Sunday 29 January, 22:00 – 23:20, LantarenVenster 6
Wednesday 1 February, 09:30 – 10:50, Pathé 3
Ascent presents Mount Fuji, the holy Japanese volcano, in every shot of this kaleidoscopic compilation of photos. Balancing between documentary and fiction, this filmic experiment is illuminated by a soundtrack of an English woman’s voice reminiscing about her dead Japanese lover who once climbed the volcano.
