St Ives Tate (DT05) Beach and Coastal Print - #stives #cornwall


Tate St Ives | Tate We visited this gallery on holiday, I think I was a teenager. It was a perfect summer's day. The huge front windows look out over the sea so that the landscape became part of the gallery. I remember going out on to the terrace, and the white walls seem to almost sparkle.


Starting as an empty white room, Roman Ondak’s Measuring the Universe at Tate St Ives has grown through the contribution of around 90’000 participants to a constellation of black marks. Through the simple action of measuring oneself, Ondak’s work doesn’t just expand on ideas of space and the universal but also the personal, creating a growing living artwork that questions just what a museum is for.
