Richard Tuttle - ' I don't know ; The weave of textile language' - Tate modern - 19/02/2015
Tuttle is both an artist and a collector and historian of textiles from around the world. In this piece he connects textiles with language in the way that grammar weaves together sound and meaning. This is the largest sculpture he has ever made.
I wanted to see this exhibit as i want to have a strong material focus in my Unit 7 project so looking at ho someone else deals with material is really informative. I like the way that Tuttle drapes and weaves the loose material around a solid sculpture and the scale was really incredible. I liked the way that it was exhibited so that the audience could see the suspended sculpture from a higher and lower angle. I liked looking up at the sculpture as you could see how the material fell and weaved a lot better.
