“A film about Mark Wallinger‘s Labyrinth.
Directed by Jared Schiller

This 30 minute documentary explores the ideas behind Mark Wallinger’s major artwork commission for London Underground,

From the influence of Harry Beck’s Tube map to the Guinness Book of Records’ Tube Challenge,

Alongside personal responses to the artworks by travellers and Underground staff.”

“2013 was the 150th anniversary of the London Underground.

To celebrate, artist Mark Wallinger has created ‘Labyrinth’, a series of 270 unique artworks – one for every station on the network.

The film reveals the inspiration and processes behind the project during a journey that starts in Chigwell, where Mark was brought up, and ends in St James’s Park, the site of the first installed work.

Along the way we also visit Mark in his Soho studio, and a factory in Redhill, Surrey, where the artworks are being meticulously handmade.”
