Superflex invade Tate’s Turbine Hall
Danish art collective – Jakob Fenger, Rasmus Nielsen and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen – create artworks that challenge capitalism, social engagement and climate change. They’ve been commissioned by Tate to create an experiential work for the Turbine Hall, following previous installations by Olafur Eliasson, Ai Weiwei and Carsten Holler.
The new piece, unveiled during Frieze Week, includes 30 sets of three-person swings throughout the industrial space, a multi-coloured carpet based on the colours of British currency with a huge pendulum swinging over the public. It’s meant to celebrate collective efforts and rethink how human can interact and enjoy the present moment together (instead of work?).
