MARBLE SQUASHAnthea Hamilton

The Squash: an immersive new environment within
The Tate Britain neoclassical galleries.

  The British artist Anthea Hamilton has transformed the heart of Tate Britain into an elaborate stage for the continuous 6-month performance of a single character, dressed in a colourful squash-like costume created by Loewe Creative Director Jonathan Anderson. Performers will select a costume each day, informing and reflecting their individual presentation of the character as they inhabit the space. Over 7,000 white floor tiles have been laid to span the length of the Duveen Galleries and encase a series of large structures that serve as podiums for a number of works of art from Tate’s collection, chosen by Hamilton for their organic forms and colours. The exhibition will be open until October 7th.
