British artist Tacita Dean has created a new filmwork for Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. FILM is an experimental response to the architecture of the space and a portrait of the medium itself.
Selected pages from Tacita Dean's notebook kept during
the making of FILM.
The Surrealist novel Mount Analogue by French writer Rene Daumal, has been an important reference to Tacita Dean in the making of FILM.
Influential artist film-maker Maya Deren suggested a Vertical Cinema, concerned with the inherent qualities of the film image - time, space and its symbolic potential.
Selected extracts from the exhibition catalogue. Tacita Dean invited international artists, film-makers, curators, critics and film activists to give their response to the medium of film.
