Phyllida Barlow to represent Britain at Venice Biennale

Sculptor Phyllida Barlow has been selected to represent Britain at the 57th Venice International Art Biennale.

The Newcastle-born sculptor, known for her large installations, was recently made a CBE for services to art.

She will present a major solo show in the British Pavilion at what is seen as the most important contemporary art festival in the world from 13 May to 26 November 2017.

Barlow said it was "an extraordinary privilege and honour".

"I am astonished, thrilled and of course hugely excited. It is going to be a remarkable experience to begin to consider the work for the imposing architecture of the British pavilion.

"I cannot imagine a more invigorating and wonderful challenge. The international diversity for which the Biennale is so renowned within the particular context of Venice is a unique and stimulating creative opportunity beyond my wildest dreams."
