The Whitechapel Gallery has commissioned a site-specific installation from French-Algerian artist Kader Attia, which marks his first solo project in the UK. The towering floor-to-ceiling structure of bookshelves is inspired by the biblical story of Jacob's Ladder, in which the prophet had visions of angels ascending from earth to heaven. It also references the buildings former occupation as a library. Within the structure is a Wunderkammer, or cabinet of artefacts and books. Through the artwork, Attia aims to encourage viewers to contemplate anthropology, politics and science through the prism of art.

 

About Whitechapel Gallery

Designed in a distinctive Arts and Crafts architecture style by Charles Harrison Townsend, the Whitechapel, Britain's first purpose-built arts gallery, is renowned both for the beauty of its light, airy space and for embracing the local community in its work. Founded in 1901, extensive refurbishment saw the gallery, reopened in April 2009, double in size. More about Whitechapel Gallery
