A MCD Heritage project
- MCD Heritage recently installed a cyclorama exhibit at Tate Britain, titled ‘Salmon: A Red Herring’ by artists Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe, also known as Cooking Sections.
- A cyclorama is a large, concave wall which depicts a scene on a big scale. The build was completed over a period of 2 weeks.
- Alongside construction, we filled and painted the structure and fitted a carpet within the space.
MCD Heritage were proud to partner with Tate Britain once again to install a cyclorama piece exploring the relationship between human dietary habits and the climate crisis. Titled ‘Salmon: A Red Herring’ by artists Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe, also known as Cooking Sections, the piece was a learning experience for us and the client.
We worked with the client from the offset to ensure their vision was achieved. Joiners worked from client drawings to produce a physical concept fulfilling both technical and client requirements. The joiners used CNC machining to bring the idea to life. Given that this was a style of build we hadn’t done before, the build went incredibly smoothly with no issues.
Project outcomes -
- Build of cyclorama was completed successfully, to clients requirements and in the allotted timescale.
- An interesting project for MCD to undertake, one which we are very proud of the results and were amazed with the finished article.
