For the 10th segment in our r3 series, we look back at Keith Tyson’s 2007 exhibition Large Field Array at Pace Wildenstein in New York. Keith Tyson arranged over 220 separate sculptural forms in a grid-like array (see the original post for more information.)
Keith Tyson was born in 1969 in Ulverston, Lancashire (England). He studied at the Faculty of Arts and Architecture, University of Brighton. In 2002, he won the Turner Prize.
Keith Tyson’s “Large Field Array” is named after the Very Large Array (VLA), a field of Radio Telescopes in New Mexico. The elements of the work are arranged in a grid and suspended on the walls. Art critic Walter Robinson described the work as “nothing less than a complete Pop cosmology”. Among the individual sculptures are a house of cards, a chair made of skeletons, a mini-tornado of water mist in a box, a roulette table, and a box with bubbling mud.
