GEOGRAPHY OF TIME
The work of Fiona Tan, with its characteristic visual richness and singular temporalities, examines complex issues such as the relationship between personal and collective history, the presence of the past in the present, the intertwinement of memory and forgetfulness, and the porous nature of identity. As epitomized by Vox Populi, a series of works each consisting of several hundreds of photographs borrowed from the family albums of inhabitants of a given city or country, these concerns revolve essentially around the question of the gaze.
ACOUSTIC PAVILION – EXPERIENCE BEAUTY THROUGH SOUND
Designed for the International Design Biennial in Saint-Étienne, this interactive sound installation allows the visitor to explore the relationship between space, form and sound. Acoustic Pavilion is an interactive exhibition in which visitors themselves create their own listening device by fabricating structures. Using a network of pipes, everyone has the opportunity to create long, short, straight or angular structures and hear how the sounds evolve through conical tips.
