BOB - Richard Wilson: Force Quit

"Force Quit features the artist’s drawings and models from significant recent projects including works detailing recent versions of his most famous work 20:50, a room half-filled with highly reflective sump oil to create a disorientating symmetrical plane, and Turning the Place Over, a 10 metre wide motorized disk in the fa├žade of an abandoned building which elegantly illustrates Wilson’s view of the architecture and engineering as ‘a slow event’ open to unexpected transformation."
