Hew Locke - Tate Britain Commission 2022
Tate Britain’s central galleries will be transformed again by a largescale immersive artwork.
Poetic and political, Hew Locke's sculptures are assembled from materials and sources that reference global histories and the symbols of our age; from coats-of-arms, trophies and weapons to plastic toys, boats and flowers. With an upbringing spanning the UK and Guyana, his work explores the languages of colonial and post-colonial power, questioning ideas of global cultural identities and how these representations are altered by the passage of time.
