Curators at the Turner Contemporary in Margate asked artists with international reputations to create individual responses to the gallery's location, it's history and its spaces.
French artist Daniel Buren created "Borrowing and Multiplying the Landscape", paying homage to the wonderful seaviews of the site where JMW Turner originally painted. The work greets visitors as they enter the gallery's ground floor and it can also be seen from an upper level balcony. It consists of a large circle, traced on the huge, sea-facing gallery windows, surrounded by transparent golden yellow vinyl. Mirrors at either end of the work, create infinite reflections of the seascape.
Buren is known for creating in situ works that respond to specific locations. His precision use of stripes to frame and comment on views is one of his hallmarks.
