Tate Liverpool: Doug Aitken – The Source (Liverpool Biennial)

15 September – 25 November 2012

What is the source of a creative idea? Where does it start and how is it realised?
Musician Jack White, British actress Tilda Swinton, late artist Mike Kelley and many
other celebrated cultural figures discuss the roots of their creativity with leading
contemporary artist Doug Aitken in Sky Arts Ignition: Doug Aitken – The Source.
Aitken’s first public realm installation in the UK, The Source showcases the artist’s
pioneering approach to public art. The work is a multi-sensory installation on Liverpool’s
historic Albert Dock featuring a pavilion designed in collaboration with British architect
David Adjaye OBE. During the day visitors are able to enter the pavilion, while at night
it takes on a new life, when its internal projection screens become visible through the
semi-transparent walls.
