Tuttle at Tate Modern: Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall presents a new commission by Richard Tuttle, entitled I Don’t Know, Or The Weave of Textile Language. Featuring Tuttle’s textiles, the installation coincides with Whitechapel Gallery’s retrospective of the artist’s work from the 1960s to the present. These two displays comprise the United Kingdom’s largest-ever survey of Richard Tuttle. The textile installation, which combines “vast sways of fabrics designed by the artist from both man-made and natural fibers in three bold and brilliant colors,” will be on display through April 6, 2015.

Lava Lake – Festen is a collection of several objects: paintings on canvas, gif-files, hand-painted porcelain and textiles. What brings them together is a grid motif of red lines that form a vibrating and moving spot. This structure – folded, rugged and slotted – is once an abstract ornament, and another time a base for figurative representations. In this living “fleshy” tissue, there appears a gap revealing the raw surface of the object: canvas, porcelain or textiles. This gap in the pattern encourages the viewer to look beyond the illusion, under the surface of the image.
