British Sign Language tour: Tate Britain Commission 2013: Simon Starling Phantom Ride

Join Martin Glover for a BSL Tour of the Tate Britain Commission 2013, Phantom Ride by Simon Starling.

Collapsing time and space, cutting back and forth on a looping trajectory, Simon Starling redoubles the space of the galleries with huge projection screens and reveals significant artworks and events that have previously animated the space like ghostly apparitions.  Using video, film, photography, slide projection and sculpture, Starling reworks existing objects and architectural spaces, adding layers to their histories to create compelling poetic narratives.
