Fiona Tan – Goraiko
Published in conjunction with Fiona Tans eponymous exhibition at Sprengel Museum Hannover, which celebrates her being awarded the SPECTRUM International Prize for Photography of the Stiftung Niedersachsen in 2019, this book reflects the artists differentiated use of photography on a comprehensive scale, taking account of the phenomenon of time and at the interface with the medium of film. Goraiko translates as the coming of the light, and refers to the sunrise as seen from the top of Mt. Fuji, the highest point in Japan. Page after page is printed with myriad representations of the iconic mountain in a comprehensive and overwhelming visual presentation.
