Hayward Gallery to showcase a Tardis

London's Hayward Gallery on the South Bank will be opening a new exhibition from the 18th February, entitled "Mark Wallinger Curates: The Russian Linesman" - a name inspired by the 1996 England vs Germany Football World Cup ruling during the match which reputedly changed the course of football history.

The exhibition will explore "notions of the liminal: thresholds between physical, political or metaphysical realms".

Says Wallinger: "I have always been interested in how we define and are defined by thresholds and boundaries, the events of history.

The works in the exhibition use illusion, artifice and dislocating devices to look at our accidental time and place in the world afresh."For Doctor Who fans, the exhibition also includes Wallinger's own "Time and Relative Dimensions in Space", a reflective 'TARDIS' originally featured in 2001's Venice Biennale.For more details on the exhibition visit the Hayward Gallery exhibition page, plus coverage in the Evening Standard and on the London SE1 website.
