    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 bbc.co.uk 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?
