CURRENT VIEWING: The Unilever Series, Tacita Dean @ Tate Modern (London) until March 11, 2012.

“I’m not an artist known for my spectacular scale or anything like that. So I had to go somewhere I’d never been before."“I’m not an artist known for my spectacular scale or anything like that. So I had to go somewhere I’d never been before."

Note to fashion's itinerant class, currently perched in London. Please make Tacita Dean's "The Unilever Series" at Tate Modern a must see. It's an event, a pilgrimage and a rite of passage. It was made by turning a Cinemascope lens 90 degrees and upending the usual landscape format of the movie screen so it becomes vertical, scaling itself to the proportions of the hall. The film itself was constructed using disappearing techniques such as masking, double-exposure and glass matte painting, to recapture the sense of wonderment generated by these skills during the early days of cinema.
