For the latest in the celebrated Duveens Commission series, which has recently included Mark Wallinger and Martin Creed, Eva Rothschild has conceived a new ambitious sculpture for the galleries that lie at the heart of Tate Britain. This is the first time a single work has been designed to stretch nearly the full length of the space, over 70 metres. Using minimal materiality, the work fills and disrupts the grandeur of these neoclassical galleries with a chaotic, energetic presence.
One of the most interesting artists of her generation, Rothschild makes striking objects which continually investigate new relationships between volume and mass, surface and structure. Born in Dublin in 1972, Rothschild lives and works in London.
