Through the Labyrinth with Cildo Meireles

Visionary artist Cildo Meireles is currently showing at Tate Modern in London. Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1948, Meireles has since the late 1960s, created sculptures and installations that function as open propositions in which the audience is invited to become acutely aware of the experience of their bodies in space and time--not only as physical beings, but as psychological, social, and political ones as well.

Here he pays tribute to the 'War of the Worlds', fitting as this months it celebrates its 70th anniversary:
"The War of the Worlds is an example of an art object that worked perfectly, in the sense that it seamlessly dissolved the border between art and life, fiction and reality ..." Cildo Meireles
