Mike Nelson

Mike Nelson at Tate Britain.

As part of the Tate Britain Commission, Mike Nelson has transformed the grand spaces of the Duveen Galleries, which we passed on our way to the McCullin exhibition. He selected objects from the post-war Britain that framed his childhood: lots of machinery, enormous knitting machines, woodwork stripped from a former army barracks, doors from an NHS hospital. I didn't quite know what to make of it all.
