Eva Rothschild Creates 200 Foot Scultpure for Tate Britain
Irish artist Eva Rothschild will create a sculpture for the Tate Britain Duveens Commission 2009. The planned single work will span the whole of the Duveen Galleries, over 200 feet long. Speaking of the commission, Rothschild said, “I’m hoping to create something that will agitate the architecture of the Duveens Galleries, tangling with your perception of the space.” The neo-classical galleries will provide an engaging background for the artist, whose works are typicaly geometric, light, and spare. Last year’s Duveens Commission was Martin Creed’s ‘Work No. 850,’ where runners ran as fast as they could through the galleries every thirty seconds. Rothschild’s work will be on view at Tate Britain June 29 – November 29, 2009.
