Despite heavy rain, the exhibition pulled in many of the photographer's fans.

This wall features one of the two photographic installations Tillmans made specially for this exhibition, 'Installation II' (2008), composed of 9 C-prints.

Tillmans' new work takes glossy photographic paper and presents it as an object in its own right, rather than as a medium of representation. In this image: 'Lichter 52' (2008), c-print, 51 x 60.8 cm, ed. 1/1

'Lichter 49' (2008), c-print, 60.8 x 51 cm, ed. 1/1'Lichter 50' (2008), c-print, 60.8 x 51 cm, ed. 1/1

Tillmans has also included one of his large 'photocopy' photographs that plays with visual flatness and different means for documenting ephemeral imagery. In this image: 'George and Dragon' (2008), C-print, 135 x 200 cm, ed 1/1
