For artist Fiona Tan, time is both a medium and a vehicle. It is a material that she studies, shapes and processes into artworks – often in combination with still and moving images. Tan’s work reveals a fascination with archives, museums, with their collections, depots and architecture. Where does the urge to collect and preserve things come from? How is information classified, organized and stored – both physically and mentally? Who controls these processes? And what power structures do they produce?

Fiona Tan will join us for a Q&A with students on the occasion of the exhibition Fiona Tan: Mountains and Molehills, currently on show at EYE.


Fiona Tan is a visual artist and filmmaker. She is best known for her skillfully crafted video and film installations, in which explorations of memory, time, history and the role of visual images are key. Her installations and photographic works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions in international venues. She has written and directed to date two feature length films.
