L53 (Wednesday – posthumous)
Today I get to deal with the part of installation that I mildly dread – playing plinth Tetris and trying to negotiate placement so that there is a good flow as well as interesting sight lines throughout the space. It’s not always quick and easy, and because most gallery layouts are vastly different from one another you can’t just set the work up in the same formation as the last space you’ve showed in.
But although the plinths are heavy to lift, they slide along the floor effortlessly. After an hour of pushing and shoving I start to get a pretty good idea of how things are going to look.
Tomorrow: installation complete!
