This project was a reflection on our relationship to large institutions as artists. The work serves as a critique of the lack of accessibility Tate Modern constructs through its ability to provide provisions for the emerging which sits outside of the ‘highly established’ realm. Tate Modern allowed us to make this work (hesitantly) when the gallery was empty and through it our bodies disrupt the hierarchies of visitor, maker and researcher. The work strives to highlight where Tate Modern draws its line and the transformation of the art institute into an educational platform. By providing the democratic conditions of education, this work rattles the emergence of anti-hegemonic teaching methods and roles within the Tate Modern.
Created in collaboration with Jamie Restivo and Warren Andrews.
