More Than a Mile of Abstract Neon Lighting Suspended Within Tate Britain

Suspended from the ceiling of Tate Britain‘s Duveen Galleries is Welsh artist Cerith Wyn Evans‘ latest installation, over a mile of bright neon lighting broken into abstract lines and monumental curves. The piece, Forms in Space… by Light (in Time), changes with perspective, each of the work’s three sections continuously morphing as one walks around the clusters of kinetic energy.

These abstract symbols appear as marked movements in the air, a direct intention by Wyn Evans who was greatly influenced by Japanese Noh theatre and choreology—the practice of turning dance into notational form.

Other site-specific installations by the aritst include Arr/Dep (imaginary landscape for the birds) at the Headquarters of Lufthansa in Frankfurt (2006) and E=V=E=N=T (2015), a sculpture commissioned for Malmö Live. You can visit his installation, which was produced for the Tate Britain Commission with support from Sotheby’s, until August 20, 2017. (via Dezeen)
