About

In Translation 'Foreignness': A Language In accompaniment to the exhibition murmur, the artist Erika Tan and curator Eliza Tan discuss the notion of ‘foreignness' and the indeterminacies of identity as constructs of visual and verbal languages, questioning the extent to which cultural experiences are shaped by pre-defined values, myths and assumptions. The discussion will be accompanied by a screening of Shot Through, a work of Tan's made from footage shot in Shanghai during a residency in 2004. The trip was not the artist's first or the second visit to China, but the ambiguous and ambivalent relationship to ‘ancestral' lands remains in the work. The work looks at the way in which China becomes a cipher through the written text of others.
