A filmed photograph stretches time, and in those often uncomfortable moments a lot happens: The viewer can see the embarrassment, bewilderment, and anger or the curiosity and shyness due to the confrontation with the camera. --Fiona Tan
Artist Fiona Tan works somewhere in between the still photograph and the moving picture. In her “moving photographs,” the before and after of the captured image is revealed; that which lies outside the frame crawls in. Correction, her latest project and the first to be made in the United States, includes several hundred filmed portraits of prisoners and prison guards, a multitude of citizens whom society seemingly prefers to lock away and keep out of sight. Consistent with her earlier work, Correction incorporates sociological and anthropological principles into an exploration of medium-specific concerns.

Scenario is a retrospective of the work of Indonesian visual artist and filmmaker Fiona Tan, whose film May You Live in Interesting Times was awarded the prize for best Dutch debut at the Netherlands Film festival. True to its title, the book is constructed as a scenario: a storyboard that evokes its own story but also offers glimpses of as-yet-unrealized projects and dreams, mixing Tan's work with "found" photographs and images. It provides perhaps the most interesting look yet at Tan's concentrated oeuvre of film and video installations, which consider the recycling of history as visual material and problems concerning cultural identity and migration. Scenario includes correspondence between Fiona Tan and John Berger, a conversation between Tan and filmmaker Heddy Honigmann, a story written especially for the book by Oscar van den Boogaard, and essays by Lynn Cooke and Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen.
