1807 – William Blake

1807 – William Blake Tate Britain 2008

As part of a display at Tate Britain, exploring William Blake’s role in the political process that lead to the abolition of slave trade in Britain in 1807, we were commissioned to design a display facing the south wall, where visitors could read a timeline of slave trading, as well as a number of facsimile excerpts of key 18th century publications on slavery, which were reproduced in a number of hardback books. This took the form of a hybrid bench/table providing visitors a place to rest as well as read. With Oliver Klimpel, Silke Klinnert & Objectif.
