Vox Populi, London.
Photographs by Fiona Tan.
Book Works, 2012. 128 pp., color illustrations throughout, 5x7".
Indonesian-born artist Fiona Tan has been commissioned to make London the focus of the fifth and final installment of her Vox Populi series. Following her work in Norway, Sydney, Tokyo and Switzerland, Tan is now using family photograph albums of Londoners. By loaning their albums, the contributors have given the artist unique access to domestic imagery that ranges from the celebratory to the mundane. Intuitively themed by Tan throughout the work will present a intimate and collective image of London, calling into question how we choose to represent ourselves, and how we consume the representation of each other.
