Tacita Dean at Tate Modern

See Tacita Dean's new work now at the Tate Modern in the Turbine Hall as part of the Unilever Series: "Entitled FILM, the work is an eleven-minute silent 35mm looped film projected onto a monolith standing 13 metres tall at the end of a darkened Turbine Hall. It is the first work in The Unilever Series to be devoted to the moving image."

  In another interpretation of 'The End Of', Dean's work has been called a "love letter" or "tribute" to the dying medium of celluloid.  See reviews of her latest work from The Guardian, The Telegraph and The Independent.  Full details of the exhibition can be found in the Press Release here.

Look here to watch Tacita Dean speak about film and here to take part in a poll asking: which do prefer, film or digital?
