This new display presents Tate’s first acquisition of work by Carsten Höller, the artist who created the latest Unilever Series commission for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. Höller’s intriguing work, Sliding Doors, consists of a seemingly never-ending hall of life-size mirrors which people can walk through on a road to nowhere. Surrounding this work, are other new acquisitions which play with viewer’s perceptions and invite them to engage with the unexpected. These include Angela Bulloch’s Belisha beacons, a fascinating sound piece by Trisha Donnelly, a video work by Ulla von Brandenburg and intriguing photographs by Tim Lee and Sharon Lockhart.
