TateShots: Iain Sinclair on Susan Philipsz's 'Surround Me'.

The eerie silence of London's financial district at the weekend inspired Susan Philipsz's first commission in the capital. Her unaccompanied voice singing Elizabethan folk songs resonates through empty streets around the Bank of England, across postwar walkways and medieval alleyways and along the banks of the River Thames. Author Iain Sinclair takes us on a walk through the City of London to discover the songs, placing them in their historical context and explaining the significance of the locations. Susan Philipsz is the winner of the 2010 Turner Prize. 'Surround Me' is an Artangel commission.
