At the heart of Fiona Tan’s works is her fascination with the changeability of identity, the unpredictable nature of representation and the interplay of memory, time and space. Her films and videos explore both ideas of individual and collective identity in an increasingly globalised world and the stories and journeys that form this identity. Images of people almost always play a key role in her photographs, films and audiovisual installations. She is also interested in language and the written word and writes the introductory texts to her films herself.
