13 Metre Tall Film Installation At The Tate Modern
A British artist will have her film displayed on a large concrete slab at the UK museum.
Artist Tacita Dean currently has her moving image work titled FILM projected onto a 13-meter tall monolith at the Tate Modern museum in the U.K. Dean’s work FILM is a ‘portrait of the analogue, photochemical, non-digital medium of film.’ She used in-camera and traditional studio techniques to recapture the ‘sense of wonderment generated by these skills during the early days of cinema.’
FILM is set inside the Turbine Hall and has the appearance of a filmstrip. It is the twelfth commission as part of The Unilever Series and the 11-minute silent 35mm lopped film is the first work in the series to be devoted to moving image. The Unilever Series showcases innovative works of art especially made for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall.
Dean is a reputable British artist who is now based in Berlin, Germany. Most of her works show ways in which solid architecture can be transformed by the camera’s lens.
