We were back at Tate Modern recently to see a superb exhibition of the work of Modigliani. As always there was time to indulge in people watching in the Turbine Hall. Standing on the walkway and just watching the shifting patterns of people, trying to spot when potential compositions are forming and judging the optimal moment. I could stand here for half an hour and come away with nothing. On this occasion it was probably just a couple of minutes and this was the only image worth keeping.
Currently there is an eye-catching floor in the Hall – is it a slope or a set of steps? I wonder what you saw at first glance. It is actually a slope, well-known to regular Tate visitors but the colours easily confuse the mind.
The Turbine Hall is often the scene of installations and the current one is by a Danish artists’ collective called SUPERFLEX. Behind me are a set of three-person swings, that are the centre piece of the installation.
