Cerith Wyn Evans at Tate Britain
The Tate Britain’s Duveen Gallery is looking lovely at the moment, lit up with a light installation by Cerith Wyn Evans.
Titled Forms in Space… by Light (in Time) Evans’ work is made up of over 2km of neon tubing.
It starts with a single hanging circle, tempting you to walk further into the space…
Then more intricate shapes appear before you’re confronted by a mass of neon lights erratically scrawled and seemingly suspended in mid-air.
One of Evan’s inspirations is Choreology – the study of translating movement into a written or notational form. Kind of like writing out a dance on paper. And it’s supposed to feel like you’re gazing up into a celestial map.
It’s part of the annual commission which invites a contemporary British artist to takeover this cavernous entrance space. The ‘Britain’s’ answer to the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall.
The installation is free to visit and on until 20 August. Find out more at the Tate Britain website here.
