Tate: Hilma af Klint & Piet Mondrian
Though they never met in real life, Hilma af Klint and Piet Mondrian’s works came to embody something similar – both artists’ languages of abstract art were rooted in nature and a desire to understand the world more deeply. Tate Modern’s exhibition, which compares the development of their practices side by side, weaves together the journey that took them from realism to deeper explorations of the physical and immaterial matter that nature and life on earth comprise.
While Forms of Life stunned visitors across the summer, JACK ARTS supported Tate’s venture to do something special in order to celebrate the exhibition beyond the gallery walls – creating a public art piece majestic in both scale and size. Curating a bespoke mural site, and artist Ellie Tate to create the piece inspired by two artists whose work resonates with her deeply, the project took up its home in Camden Market’s Hawley Wharf. Reimagining The Ten Largest, no. 2: childhood and Tableau I, the mural was a monumental tribute to two greats in art history, and to a fantastic exhibition that reaffirmed their position.
