For Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall the American sculptor and poet Richard Tuttle has created a large-scale sculptural installation, the largest work ever created by the artist. The work is principally constructed of fabric and reminds of the wings of an airplane. The presentation of the commissioned sculpture is part of a survey of Richard Tuttle’s work, and accompanies a major exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery, which spans five decades of Tuttle’s career. In this video we have a look at the work, which is titled I Don’t Know, Or The Weave of Textile Language, on the occasion of the press preview.
