Richard Wilson is one of Britain's most celebrated sculptors. He is known for his interventions in architectural space which draw heavily for their inspiration from the worlds of engineering and construction and are characterised by concerns with size and structural daring. Wilson has exhibited widely nationally and internationally, and represented Britain in the Sydney, Yokohama, Sao Paulo and Venice Biennials. He was awarded the prestigious DAAD residency in Berlin 1992/3. His commissioned contribution to Liverpool's European Capital of Culture 2008, titled Turning the Place Over, comprised a vast ovoid section of a façade that rotates three dimensionally on a spindle. 20:50 was first created in 1987 and was shown as a permanent installation at the Saatchi Gallery. Wilson was appointed Visiting Research Professor at the University of East London in 2004 and lives and works in London.
