LAST DAYS

Fiona Tan: Ascent

The Samstag Museum of Art brings a concise selection of works by Fiona Tan to Adelaide. Centring upon the Australian premiere of Ascent, this is the first significant presentation of the artist’s work in our country in ten years.

Ascent is not only a reflection on Mount Fuji—a mountain of great significance to the Japanese—but also a study of its visual culture and a tribute to the history of both photography and film.
