I Don’t Know . The Weave of Textile Language

We hadn’t intended to visit Tate Modern during our recent break in London. But after walking along the south bank of the Thames from Waterloo bridge heading towards the Millenium bridge we decided to call in for our dinner (midday meal for us Northerners) in the Tate’s rather excellent cafe where we had a very nice meal – the fish of the day.

Walking through the Turbine Hall on our way out after we’d eaten we spotted what, at first glance, looked like an enormous wing suspended from the ceiling.

It turned out that it was a  sculpture created by the American sculptor Richard Tuttle – his largest ever work

Although, at first, it appeared to be one large structure, it was actually made up of three separate pieces, all constructed from plywood and fabric
