‘Blood on Silk: Last Seen’ is a large-scale art­work by artist Fiona Davies re­flect­ing on med­i­calised dy­ing in in­ten­sive care units (ICU), pre­sented as the first work for the in­au­gu­ral Tur­bine Hall Com­mis­sion.

Sheer swathes of hand­made silk pa­per with still and mov­ing images pro­jected over the sur­faces drop from the high beams of the Tur­bine Hall – an im­pres­sive 800 square me­tres of ma­te­rial extending across the en­tire ex­panse of the space repli­cates five ICU rooms.
