We are delighted to announce three exhibitions on the theme of wilderness taking place across Floors 3 and 4 in early 2008. Wilderness will present art by contemporary artists working across a range of media who address the theme of physical or psychological wilderness in their work.


 

Within the same exhibition, we will present a room of works by Lativan-American artist Vija Celmins in partnership with ARTIST ROOMS, a touring collection of modern and contemporary art jointly managed by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland. Celmin’s densely layered drawings and prints engage with the natural world, in particular nature’s surfaces and skies, prompting questions around representation, perception and human experience. On Floor 4, there will also be a rare opportunity to see Mike Nelson’s 1997 installation, Lionheart from the Gallery’s Permanent Collection. With this work, Nelson creates a fictional drifter’s camp, providing an immersive and visually-arresting environment for the viewer to walk within.
