    There are moments of pure physical pleasure and spatial seduction to be found in Innes’s raw surfaces. The imagination may wander and make comparisons with landscapes, yet we are reaching for a world within a flat plane, which Innes continuously reminds us by forcing the process towards us in his literal titles.

    Another video maker who knows how to grab our attention is the Indonesian artist Fiona Tan. Of the new works in her current show, two pieces stand out. The Changelingis a two-channel work in which, one by one, around 200 vintage sepia images of Japanese schoolgirls appear on the first screen while on a second screen, a single inscrutable face of a girl is picked out.

  • As exciting as daytime TV ~ Laura Cumming

    Published in The Observer, September 2006

    Tan’s art is beautiful, pensive and almost exclusively in the form of portraits that take, unusually for this often clueless medium, a genuine interest in the humanity of the subjects.

  • Who’s who at London Frith Street Gallery ~ Rowan Kerek

    Published in online, September 2006

    Fiona Tan’s video installation, The Changeling, is elegantly simple, deceptively so. Caught up in a fictional woman’s musings you’re cast into her memories of being one of these quiet-looking tidy girls, any of them; does it matter which?

  • Fiona Banner: Nude ~ Roberta Smith

    Published in The New York Times, April 2006

    In her latest works, the British artist Fiona Banner presents her own eccentric version of drawing from life. These works involve a lot of language, as might be expected from someone known for written, billboard-sized blow-by-blow accounts of the action in movies like ‘‘Lawrence of Arabia,’’ ‘‘Top Gun’’ and ‘‘Don’t look back”.

  • Jaki Irvine, The Irish Museum of Art ~ Niamh Ann Kelly

    Published in Art Monthly, March 2006

    The protagonists and situations of these short video loops make compelling viewing. Deer are among the most stately and elegant of forest creatures, their significance rich in mythological connotation and aesthetic awe. Bats, whose presence is protected in Ireland, also induce much imaginative suggestion.

  • Polly Apfelbaum ~ Jan Avgikos

    Published in Artforum, March 2006

    Trends in contemporary art come and go with brisk regularity, yet pushing the boundaries between painting and sculpture is a perennial fascination. Polly Apfelbaum surfs this never-breaking wave with consummate skill, making “bi-formalism” a leitmotif of her floor-bound fabric installations, which have sometimes been referred to as “fallen paintings”.
