Candid and hard-hitting, this giant fountain in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern explores the slave trade and the histories of Africa, Europe and America. Inspired by the fountain outside Buckingham Palace, the commission is a welcome antidote to the crass and troubling colonial fountains and statues that dominate too many of our public spaces.
