Sigmar Polke

Visual direction for Tate Modern’s Autumn 2014 exhibition.

The use of a raster dots design is taken directly from Polke’s 'Girlfriends' artwork. The intention is to communicate something more of Polke’s inventiveness in layering, distorting and empathising Xerox print processes and glitches.

The bright background washes also recall Polke’s uranium photographs, providinga field of colour for the lead image to sit on. This graphic can morph to fit various print and screen formats.
