A life-sized mirrored Tardis created by Mark Wallinger, the artist behind the "Angel of the South", was being installed today as part of the first gallery exhibition the Turner Prize winner has ever curated.
Wallinger was announced yesterday as winner of the new Ebbsfleet Landmark commission with his giant white horse.
He is also preparing a touring exhibition inspired by the controversial ruling in the 1966 World Cup final between England and Germany.
The show, called The Russian Linesman, investigates how the lines between fact and fiction are often blurred.
The exhibition opens at The Hayward in London before moving to Leeds and Swansea.
It navigates almost 2,000 years of history, from an early Roman double-headed marble bust of Dionysus and Silenus, through to popular View-Master stereoscopic photographs and 18th century trompe l'oeil (trick of the eye) paintings.
The show also includes Wallinger's own work Time And Relative Dimensions In Space (2001), a life-sized mirrored representation of the Tardis from Doctor Who which was first shown at the Venice Biennale.
Wallinger said: "I have always been interested in how we define and are defined by thresholds and boundaries, the events of history.
"The works in the exhibition use illusion, artifice and dislocating devices to look at our accidental time and place in the world afresh."
As part of The Russian Linesman, Wallinger's 1996 work, Oxymoron - a large Union Jack flag that swaps the traditional British colours of red, white and blue for the Irish flag colours of green, white and orange - will fly on the Jubilee Flagpole on Jubilee Gardens, Southbank Centre.
The exhibition is the latest in an ongoing Hayward Touring series.
Yesterday, Wallinger's giant white horse was announced as a new 2 million public art commission in south east England dubbed the "Angel of the South".
The winning design was selected from a three-strong shortlist as part of the Ebbsfleet Landmark Project.
His design will see a horse standing on all four hooves at 33 times life-size.
Once built, the artwork will dominate the north Kent landscape, standing as high as Nelson's Column at around 164ft (50m).
The Russian Linesman opens at The Hayward on February 18, running to May 4.
The exhibition will then tour to Leeds Art Gallery from May 16 to June 28 and Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea, from July 18 to September 20.
