Tate Britain commission 2014 - Phyllida Barlow 'dock'

Details

Dock

The tate commission exhibition this year is named Dock, a series of installations created by Phyllida Barlow. The exhibition consists of Barlows sculptures and installations created from easily accessible and waste materiadls such as cardboard, binliners, plywood, polystyrene and canvas material. The installations are held up by large timber structures and cable ties, the whole scene is large and chaotic as the materials are above the heads of the audience or hanging down to our level. The whole gallery is filled by the structures and all the lighting is natural sunlight through high ceiling windows; the large open space and natural light filled with structures creates the idea of being outside in a natural area. The changes in light on the installations created shadows around the room and gave some of the structures a more gothic view as the light occasionally faded. 

Walking around the installations made me feel small and in the presence of something important, the hanging structures made me feel slightly uncomfortable as they looked heavy and created the idea of them floating above my head, this made me walk quite quickly underneath some structures due to the fear of them collapsing. I think the main theme of this exhibit is the use of unwanted recycled materials and how they can be used to create something great and visually exciting through the use of overlapping and placement.

Visitors at this exhibition are forced to look up in order to take in the whole installation, the audience walked slowly through the exhibit until they were forced to walk underneath the sculptures, when some might have felt uncomfortable underneath the suspended objects which sometimes seemed to be swaying slightly.

French Revolution

Whilst walking around the 'dock' exhibition I was reminded of scenes from the film 'Les Miserables' which addresses the French Revolution and the man-made barricades created by revolutionaries using broken tables and chairs and old furniture.

Medicine Now - Wellcome Collection

Details

Wellcome Collection

Medicine now addresses existing medical problems such as obesity, this made me think about the condition and whether it is a problem for the NHS to solve or a problem that we should solve alone as humans; the most shocking piece depicting self image and perception was 'I cant help the way i feel' by John Issacs 2003, it is a sculpture of a human body being engulfed by lumps of flesh and rashes. The piece made me wonder whether it was targeting obesity or how self perception and image has spiralled out of control causing humans to become wrapped up in the idea of image. Medicine now aslo looked at the human form displaying various sculptures of the human form, identifying sight, skeleton and the human brain. This exhibit made me think about how far medicine has excelled and how humans have adapted and altered due to medical advances.

John Isaacs 'I can't help the way I feel'

Wax, polystyrene, steel, expanding foam and oil paint. "In this work lies an interest in a representational possibility of the emotional landscape of the body becoming manifest in its surface. Visually, the way in which the flesh grows, erupts and engulfs the body can be seen as a metaphor of the way in which we become incapacitated by the emotional landscape in which we live and over which we have little control. Of course, the body also appears to be suffering from some kind of malignancy, as in cancer, but, for me, the image of the figure, coupled with the title, leads one into an open contemplation of the plight of the individual." John Isaacs Information from Wellcome Collection website

The seeing Mind - Osi Audu - (Steel, rope, animatronic eye and Perspex)

The seeing mind attracted the audience due its unusual appearance; it was difficult to work out what the piece was supposed to be doing. Once I approached the installation i was shocked as the small circle in the middle of the piece opened to expose an eye. I watched as other people did the same, some were shocked when the eye suddenly opened others didn't stand long enough or close enough to the piece. I think the message of the seeing mind is to look more closely in order to see what might happen, curiosity is the key.

Annie Cattrell - SENSE - 2001-03

Sequence of sculptures illustrating the human brain patterns as it responds to the five senses.

Plastinated body slice with frontal cut

Aimee Mullins, Alexander McQueen, 1999

Images found in a book at the Medicine now exhibition - looking at prosthetics and body extensions ' The prosthetic impulse'. The images i found in the book made some of the messages within the exhibit a lot clearer,the McQueen image addressed the evolution of the human figure and how it has been adapted and altered with body extensions such as clothing and also prosthetics.
