Gia Wolff MArch ’08 Unveils Installation at the Tate Modern

Gia Wolff MArch ’08

Gia Wolff MArch ’08 unveils Canopy, a new installation in the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern. Canopy is 5,500 feet of custom-made ropes hung above and under the bridge, from one end of the hall to the other, as a means to enhance the processional nature of the Turbine Hall and entice the motion of audience members through it and alongside the other performers and participants. The piece aims to transform Herzog & DeMeuron’s architectural space for the Turbine Hall into a carnival space reminiscent of Oscar Niemeyer’s carnival stadium in Rio de Janeiro, the world-famous Sambadrome.
