Patrick Keiller: The Robinson Institute
Tate Britain, London
In a major commission for Tate Britain, artist Patrick Keiller employed over 120 works from Tate’s collection to create a narration of the English landscape and its political and economic history. Diverse works—historic prints, paintings and drawings, extracts from film and literature, and Keiller’s own film and photography—had somehow to be displayed so that they could be read cohesively.
The solution was to create a geometric aluminium frame, mapping out a landscape of its own within the Duveen Galleries and providing a consistent method of presentation for the vast number of works of varied media.
