Fun for all Ages?

Fun for all Ages?

At my recent visit back to the UK, I experienced a rather fun art installation by Superflex, a group of Danish artists (founded in 1993) who is best known for their playfully subversive films and art installations. At Tate Modern, Superflex installed an orange line of swings woven through the Turbine Hall.

Each swing has been designed with three people on the same seat; specifying that swinging with two other people has greater potential than swinging alone, thus the work is called One Two Three Swing! Swinging in group of three’s, creates a collective energy that resists gravity and challenges the laws of nature, as claimed by Superflex.

By taking part in this collective installation, you are bound to enjoy the company of many other visitors of all ages! This brings people casually together in a relaxed ambiance to have a good laugh and excitement!

So, if you are heading to the UK sometime in the next few months, do drop by the Tate Modern, London. This installation has extended its exhibit period to 2 October 2018. So try experience One Two Three Swing! first-hand!

Keeping Up to date with Contemporary Art!

Visiting Damien Hirst’s exhibition ‘Visual Candy vs Natural History’ at Gagosian Gallery made me wonder about the connections we find between contemporary art and science. Hirst is known for his installations, sculptures, paintings and drawings that explore these connections. This exhibition showed Hirst’s pickled animals, and decapitated heads that were surrounded by vibrant, coloured oil paintings. It was inspiring, thought provoking and interesting. What projects have you done that connect art and science?
