Late at Tate: Disrupt happened at Tate Britain on 1st May. This event, curated by Tate Collectives London, focused on alternative ways of viewing items in Tate’s Collection. In addition to 3D printing and live music, new work of mine, commissioned by Tate Collectives London, was displayed on loop throughout the gallery.
These short pieces, entitled Unstable Mediums, were a remix of two items in Tate’s collection, Ecstasy by Eric Gill and Eve by Sir Thomas Brock. In these remix pieces I wanted to turn the solid structures into malleable, fluid objects.
I was unfortunately in Toronto at the time of the event, but from the photos it seems like the pieces worked really well in the space:
Thanks again to Tate Collectives London for commissioning me to make the pieces. I had a lot of fun making them!
Whilst I’m away in Toronto for Libre Graphics Meeting, two new commissioned pieces will be screening at Late at Tate: Disrupt at Tate Britain on Friday 1st May from 18:00.
This year, Late at Tate Britain re-launches with a new series taking place over April, May and June exploring the theme of speculation. What does it mean to speculate? Consider, wonder, suppose or propose. Join us as we question, transform and disrupt ideas around art and creativity.
For the second event of the series titled DISRUPT, join in with alternative ways of experiencing Tate Britain and Tate’s collection. Sound researchers, theorists, musicians and performance artists will present alternative interpretations of the gallery environment to disrupt the way you think about and experience art and artists.
The two pieces, titled Unstable Mediums, turn two of the pieces in Tate’s collection – Ecstasy by Eric Gill and Eve by Sir Thomas Brock – into fluid materials. If you head over to my tumblr you can see previews of the pieces. They will be projected and looped in the Octagon space alongside work by a range of rad peeps! It all takes place from 18:00 – 22:00 and it’s all free!
