Anna Barriball’s typographic artwork About 60 miles of beautiful views is the latest commission by Art on the Underground to go on display on the Tube network. Barriball will display a collection of evocative phrases taken from the back of found photographs.
Printed in London Underground’s classic New Johnston font, the texts will be displayed on posters in advertising spaces across the network. Travellers will encounter unexpected phrases like ‘About 60 miles of beautiful views.’ or ‘On way to birthday party.’ or ‘Looking back the way we had come.’ These cryptic texts are loaded with personal memory, yet connect with individual reasons for travel and the millions of private thoughts we carry on our journeys.

This installation consists of six distinct films depicting legendary choreographer and dancer Merce Cunningham performing Stillness, his singular choreography to John Cage’s radical 1952 composition, 4’ 33”. In each film, the fixed camera remains focused on Cunningham, who sits in a chair and assumes a variety of attitudes. This static scene is broken twice, when Trevor Carlson, director of the Cunningham Dance Company, marks the three parts with a simple gesture. Subtly different, each performance has been filmed from a different camera angle. Each is presented on a screen whose dimensions are calibrated to render the image of Cunningham life-size.
Tacita Dean will also take part in the Folkestone Triennial
