The limited edition print, Red
, 2000, was created as part of the series Ten Artists, Ten Images
, a portfolio of ten photographs commissioned by Tate Publishing to celebrate the opening of Tate Modern in 2000. Ten contemporary artists working with photography were invited to make an artwork inspired by the Bankside building and its surroundings. The resulting artworks chart different aspects of the site’s development from power station to museum of modern art under the direction of Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron.
Sam Taylor-Johnson’s photograph shows a member of the curatorial team working at the museum, set in the lush red seating of the museum’s Starr auditorium. The piece turns cinematic convention around, placing the camera in the position of the screen facing the audience, to examine the process of looking. The edition of 50 is signed and numbered by the artist and is unframed.
Prices of the artwork are liable to change. As a limited edition sells out, prices of the artwork are subject to increase and the price will be clearly indicated.
