press release

The latest in a series of eight week displays by international contemporary artists has been undertaken by Belgian artist Jan De Cock. De Cock's large-scale installations are made in response to the architecture of the site he is working in and are both aesthetic interventions in the space as well as performing a utilitarian function. For Tate Modern, De Cock has created a series of installations and sculptures which extend beyond the Level 2 Gallery and throughout the circulation routes used by visitors. His installations mimic functional gallery furniture, like information desks and seating, but seem strangely at odds with the gallery space as they are constructed from green plywood. During the summer months, De Cock and his team assembled the project in a specially designed area in front of the north fa├žade of the gallery, so the public could observe their work as it progressed.
