    Country: Germany

    Place: British Embassy

    Catherine Yass produced this snail-like image and another, "Observatory", for the British Embassy in Berlin. The subject of "Pavilion" is the De La Warr Pavilion, a centre for contemporary arts in Bexhill on Sea, on the south coast of England. An icon of Modernist architecture, the Pavilion was designed in 1935 by Erich Mendelsohn, who was also the architect behind the Einstein Tower, the subject of Yass's companion work "Observatory". The heightened, intense colours of these works were produced by superimposing positive and negative transparencies onto one another and making tonal adjustments during the printing process. Catherine Yass was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2002.
