Naum Gabo's 'Linear Construction No. 1' 1942–3, now on display at Tate Britain

Gabo first came to England in 1935, and spent the war years living in Cornwall. It was in St Ives that he began to use nylon filament in his sculpture. Space and time remained his main artistic preoccupations and he aimed to produce a self-contained object that would suggest the universal and infinite. #art #sculpture #geometry #Bauhaus #constructivism

  •   jenssmith 7d
  •   robylobeiraart Qué mamada #pffff , why should we be intrigued? Really? 😐 6d
  •   walking.moon @tategallery I'm sorry...I don't want to be rude but it starts to get annoying... 6d
  •   lindsayalkerstudio Agree ! not intriguing 6d
  •   juleswoodfield this is getting old... 6d
  •   luciennecole I have to agree too. There are artists whose work is So much more interesting - I saw the show in Paris and its magnificent. Sonia is an influence to me. Why not show more related Delaunay images- I'm all for exposing new artists- I am one- but this much of an Instagram feed has been a bit too much - I've seen comments from people thinking the Tates account had been infiltrated/ spammed 6d

  •   badenoir The collective mosaic looks as random as the cropped images. 1w
  •   myauntagatha Sorry but this is now a reason for an unfollow . Goodbye 1w
  •   sleonard_etc I really think you could have used a post explaining this project, @tategallery - or a sentence within the post. Having an Insta takeover without any kind of information is just confusing, and has obviously been alienating to a lot of your followers. 1w
  •   pretzeldot Huh, I'm agreed, this is an unpleasant tactic, as it looks like the advertising/promo company for Ling has taken over the @tategallery feed 1w
  •   pretzeldot Upshot, this is a spam across 3 Instagram feeds. Tate, mini title , & Ling. Mini Title, the name of the photographic agency, was identified in these @tategallery posts a few days back. But no longer. 1w
  •   luciennecole Interesting. I thought it was rather odd! Certainly is unpleasant. Has buggar all relation to the wonderful Sonia Delaunay. 1w
  •   isaac_lost_ This is superb - original- inspiring. 1w

  •   the_beard_follower Bored of seeing this stuff #unfollow 1w
  •   saltconcrete Stop it already 1w
  •   melbournelily I'm unfollowing too, it's beyond ridiculous. 1w
  •   maitrayeeghosh Brilliant. More the better. Keep going @tanya_ling. The complete grid is amazing. 1w
  •   isaac_lost_ @saltconcrete @melbournelily nobody cares that you've unfollowed, the fact you've bothered to comment that is frankly embarrassing.This grid is a phenomenon and is intuitive, you don't get it so you choose to hate it. Tanya Ling and the tate please keep going! all this hate is winding me up because I think it's fantastic and look forward to seeing how the grid develops .. Far more interesting than what I usually see on insta :-) 1w
  •   melbournelily @isaac_lost_ forgive me for having an opinion on something that I follow to give me pleasure. Forgive me for not 'understanding' the pretentious phenomenon that you like and because I chose to comment on, you found it embarrassing. Grow some will you? I'm entitled to my opinion, art is supposed to provoke debate. Not to belittle someone who doesn't agree with you. 1w
  •   clatzin @melbournelily Don't trouble yourself with the remarks of @isaac_lost_ He responded to my post as well, equally snippy. He keeps writing that nobody cares, yet, he's quick to find offense even where there is none. And quick to care enough to take the trouble to say that nobody cares. I, too, attempted to explain the complexities of personal opinion but I see now that I was unsuccessful in my endeavor. You'll find the exchange in one of the posts prior. The one with the small circle with red and black lines. I don't know how else to identify it since we are not looking at titled works of art. 7d
  •   isaac_lost_ @melbournelily @clatzin sure you can have your opinions, so don't get sensitive when I choose to debate, if Tanya Ling's work is getting slagged off every other post I'd like to encourage her because it is great. Her sense of colour, lighting and composition is intuitive, this grid is ambiguous and is beautiful. You writing 'unfollow' is just pathetic and as for @clatzin who is getting excited by my comments , please keep responding your reactions only give these posts more attention, because of course no one important is reading what you say just counting up the lines. 7d

  •   melbournelily Have you got any other artists you could feature 1w
  •   maitrayeeghosh Amazing colour ...incredible concept 1w
  •   isaac_lost_ @postmodern_art @clatzin this is bloody brilliant , shut up 1w
  •   postmodern_art Do with your mouth whatever you want to, but when it comes to me you better keep a mile away. This is not SHoutouts page, where everyone gets Shoutouts, it looked like museum page. And Kasimir Malevich was brilliant indeed. Over a hundred years ago @isaac_lost_ 1w
  •   postmodern_art It does not add another dimension to his work. As well it is simply flooded the feed supposed to be diverse. 1w
  •   clatzin @isaac_lost_ I can only begin to count the ways your response is flawed, but I'll make a start: 1) Your eloquence is underwhelming. 2) "this is brilliant" is your opinion and you are entitled. I don't share it and am equally entitled. This is how opinions work. 3) "shut up" Really? No. 4) Put together, "this is bloody brilliant , shut up" is not a rational argument for anything. 5) My post was in direct response to the still ill-managed direction given in the caption. How did you jump from my request for clarity to a need to defend the image posted? Focus 1w
  •   isaac_lost_ @clatzin you are very annoying indeed, this essay you have just written is BORING. NO ONE CARES. @tanya_ling 'Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches' - Andy Warhol. 1w
  •   isaac_lost_ Tbh, you've done quite well to cause such a response, these boring bitter people have nothing better to do. Block them. 1w

  •   jonathankws It doesn't really matter - it's a shame that I have unfollowed @tategallery because of this. Sonia Delauney exhibition looks good so still hope to go. Maybe they'll realise people don't want their feeds clogged up this much! 2w
  •   bookbw I get it already... Sonia Delauney IS INDEED #AWESOME!!! @tanyaling via @tategallery... NOT so much! Ready to unfollow now. 2w
  •   montypop I love you guys...please stop 2w
  •   mramilnes Lovely, keep it going! 2w
  •   anabelaltenburg So pretty Tanya!! Love it so much 2w
  •   tategallery Thank you for your comments. All has been noted. No comments were intentionally deleted, apologies if some were. This takeover shows artist Tanya Ling's response to Sonia Delaunay, keep an eye on the grid view to see how it all develops. 2w
  •   clatzin @lilyandbread Agreed. And well said. @tategallery Contemporary art already has an uphill battle reaching the public without a museum neglecting to proactively bridge that gap. You have an educated and receptive audience here and are losing us for lack of information. An accompanying standard guidance caption with each post might have helped to save a few deserters. Of course, you also have a gamble on your hands as to whether the payoff will be worth saturating our feed. 2w
  •   maitrayeeghosh Thank you Tate Gallery. We have been watching non stop phenomenal work of Tanya Ling. Incredible. Lot of times we don't understand good things before they are brought and shown. Thanks for bringing it to us. I can touch every one of them. 1w
