Tillmans is exploring his musical talents further in his installation 'South Tank', from 3-12 March at Tate Modern, where he is transforming a former oil tank into an experimental space bringing together music, light, audio field recordings and his video films. It coincides with Tillman's solo exhibition, 'Wolfgang Tillmans: 2017' at the museum, 17 years after he won the Turner Prize.
As part of 'South Tank', there is a programme of five free live events by Tillmans and other musicians, including his musical partners Tim Knapp and Jay Pluck, Lori E. Allen, Thomas Brinkmann, Othon, Throwing Shade and Wreck & Reference.
At once political, emotional, sensitive and with an attention to beauty, the images form a highly personalised view of life – particularly in London, where Tillmans is based, and Germany, where is from.
'Wolfgang Tillmans: 2017' is at Tate Modern until 11 June 2017
