Tate Britain installation by filmmaker Cerith Wyn Evans June 06 2017

 

 

An installation by filmmaker Cerith Wyn Evans titled Forms in Space … by Light (in Time) is on view at the Tate Britain in London through Aug. 20. The artwork, created for the annual Tate Britain Commission, is made of nearly 2 kilometers (6,561 feet) of neon tubes suspended from the ceiling of the museum’s Duveen Galleries. Arranged in three sections, the sculpture of straight lines, sweeping curves, and spiraling forms finds its starting point in a single neon ring and ends in a maze of neon lines. Evans’ “drawing in space” takes its inspiration from the precise movements used in Japanese Noh theater and his interest in choreology—the practice of translating movement into notational form.
