2007 Turner prize-winner Mark Wallinger, one of Britain's most original and unpredictable artists, curates this unique exhibition exploring notions of the liminal: thresholds between physical, political or metaphysical realms.
Artists include Vija Celmins, Thomas Demand, Albrecht Durer, Bruce Nauman, Giuseppe Penone and Fred Sandback.
'Mark Wallinger's winning proposal for the Ebbsfleet commission is a classic example of how this immensely talented artist is able to merge diverse interests and political concerns into a visually compelling sculpture. Alluding to the area's cultural history and to the history of cross-cultural influence in Britain, as well as more topical issues such as immigration, his horse is a good bet to be one of the most memorable public sculptures produced in this century' (Ralph Rugoff, Director of the Hayward Gallery).
