Wolfgang Tillmans – 'What Art Does in Me is Beyond Words'

London's Tate Modern, apart from being one of the most significant public galleries anywhere, produce a series of short YouTube videos that support and amplify their various activities. I was drawn to a recent production - Wolfgang Tillmans – 'What Art Does in Me is Beyond Words'.

Tate says this: We spend the day with artist Wolfgang Tillmans in his Berlin studio as he prepares for his Tate Modern exhibition.
German-born, international in outlook and exhibited around the world, Wolfgang Tillmans spent many years in the UK and is currently based in Berlin. In 2000, he was the first photographer and first non-British artist to receive the Turner Prize.
Alongside portraiture, landscape and intimate still lifes, Tillmans pushes the boundaries of the photographic form in abstract artworks that range from the sculptural to the immersive.

Running for just over 6 minutes the video is well worth a look. You can do so HERE. And can go to the Tate Modern site HERE.
