Just a quick look in the #tatemodern to see if a lunchtime exhibition visit is an option..... maybe if I don't eat. 🤓

Playfully subversive artists #SUPERFLEX have filled #Tate Modern’s #TurbineHall with swings. #installationart #sitespecificinstallation
Each swing has been designed for three people. Swinging with two other people has #greaterpotential than swinging alone and One, Two, Three, Swing! invites us to realise this potential together. Swinging as three, our collective energy resists #gravity and challenges the laws of nature.

The enormous mirrored ball suspended from the roof of the Turbine Hall in Tate Modern. The piece invited you to consider the economy and our ties to money - whilst at the same time being sponsored by a major vehicle manufacturer, which we found ironic. Still, @jenlamb212 and I had a lovely time on the big swings! I also discovered that the shop there has the most amazing selection of stunning children's picture books, so my librarian side got v excited... I've earmarked some beauties for some small people I know! 😊

#AiWeiwei's 'A Living Sculpture' 2012, was one of the first works to be made especially for #TheBox, #pippyhouldsworthgallery's micro-project space. Following the large-scale installation of his #SunflowerSeeds at #TateModern, it was Weiwei’s fascination with the micro as well as the macro that led to his interest in The Box, and his presentation of a ‘living’ sculpture. A porcelain River Crab, which in Chinese is a homonym for harmony as well as a popular euphemism for censorship, encroaches upon the cactus, both of which are set behind glass and trapped within the confines of a white cube of only 40 by 40 by 40 cm. Weiwei's darkly comic ‘arrangement’ suggested a metaphor of resilience and a quiet yet potent protest at a time when he was incarcerated himself and unable to leave China. ..

The vast turbine hall at TATE MODERN has been transformed into a gigantic PLAYGROUND for children and adults alike, by the Danish art collective SUPERFLEX.
A striped carpet covers the sloping entrance, whilst a mirrored pendulum swings very slowly above. Behind the camera, 22 orange coloured swings, each for three people, have been installed. Thus, this enormous art installation is entitled ONE TWO THREE, SWING!
