Mat Collishaw’s Sordid Earth on TateShots

This summer at the Roundhouse, Mat Collishaw collaborated with designer Ron Arad to create an ambitious work – Sordid Earth. The Tate have just posted a video of this work as part of TateShots.

Designer Ron Arad created Curtain Call, a 360-degree canvas for film created using 5,600 silicon rods suspended in an 18-metre diameter ring. Sordid Earth drew on Collishaw’s earlier series, Infectious Flowers, where he explored the confluence of beauty and decay, digitally grafting various skin diseases onto photographs of flowers. Sordid Earth explored the confluence of beauty and decay, digitally grafting various skin diseases onto photographs of flowers. The immediate impact was heightened by presenting them on a far greater scale, set within a tropical landscape with cascading waterfalls.
