This documentary (Gerald Fox, UK 2008, 50 min) by award-winning director Gerald Fox, presents an intimate portrait of the artist’s life and work, a story largely told by the artist himself.
A pioneer of installation art in the 1960s, Brazilian Cildo Meireles (b.1948) has influenced generations of international artists, yet, surprisingly, his work is little known in Britain. His dramatic and politically charged environments have included maze-like structures built upon shards of broken glass that the visitor must walk across, and rooms filled with ashes and the smell of gas.
A Tate Media production in association with Arts Council England
