Mike Nelson

Mike Nelson - To the Memory of H.P. Lovecraft - seen here
I'm quite excited by the choice of Mike Nelson to represent Britain at the 2011 Venice Biennale, it feels just right to me. The Guardian published a nice series of photos today. One of my favourite exhibitions of recent years was Psycho Buildings at the Hayward Gallery in 2008; Mike Nelson's contribution, To the Memory of H.P. Lovecraft was amazing. An empty room recently wrecked by...what? That's the fun of the piece, you're left to imagine the narrative. Nelson has been nominated twice for the Turner Prize and here's a Tate video about him.
