Tamlin Blake’s monumental tapestry installation is akin a Renaissance fresco in its magnitude of scale, the sweeping drama of its thematic conception and the brilliance of its detail. Through a series of five scenes spread over 6 panels, the first of which is suspended from a giant wooden loom, the artist is taking us on a historical journey that spans several hundred years while at the same time managing to weave a personal story that draws the viewer into the private world of her imagination, personal histories and concerns that also speak to the wider anxieties, hopes and fears of our times.
 
The project that took the artist four years to complete was set up as an enquiry into the fourth industrial revolution, a phenomenon characterised by much media and political hype and little common understanding of either its scope or its potential impact on our every day lives.
 
From panel to panel the artist invites us to follow her on an epic journey that connects the past, the present and the future.
