As a photographer, installing Fiona Tan: Ascent gave me the chance to think about images and videography in a new light, you know… to step back, reconsider and reimagine. Spending time with Fiona Tan’s work this week has broadened my understanding of the collective importance of Mount Fuji and I am humbled to have been a part of this exhibit. – Corey Bryson, AGGV Preparator/Technician.
On March 9, the AGGV celebrates two separate, but related, exhibitions that memorialize Mount Fuji and its manifestations in the Japanese and non-Japanese aesthetic.
The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is honoured to present Fiona Tan’s Ascent. This montage film is entirely made up of still photographic images depicting one of Japan’s most recognizable landmarks, Mount Fuji.
