TateShots went behind the scenes of the production of Simon Starling’s new film work, Phantom Ride



For the Tate Britain Commission 2013, Simon Starling has created a film called Phantom Ride which explores the history of the Duveen Galleries and revisits some of the artworks which have been installed there. Using motion control technology for filming, and complex post-production techniques, Starling has described the work as ‘a sort of ghost story’.

Phantom Ride can be seen at Tate Britain from 12 March – 20 October 2013
