Richard Wilson’s 20:50 [Limited edition] – Stef Michalak
I took this shot in the Saatchi gallery in 2016 of Richards Wilsons installation before making some slight modificaions to the image.
Richard Wilson’s 20:50 is truly a contemporary masterpiece. The work was the only permanent installation at the Saatchi Gallery and had been continuously shown in each of the gallery’s venues between 1991 to 2015.
Viewed from the entrance platform 20:50 appeared as a holographic field: simultaneously a polished floor, infinite clear pool, an expansive and indefinable virtual space that clinically absorbs and mirrors the gallery architecture. The room was in fact entirely flooded in oil.
Through this altered perspective 20:50’s phantasmical aura is enhanced, amplifying the disorientating and mesmerising experience of the space, and further confounding physical logic.
Each print is signed and numbered with limited edtion run of 200 prints.
