カールステン・フラー / Carsten Höller – The Unilever Series



ロンドン、テイトモダンに全長55mの滑り台が登場。
植物病理学の博士号を持つ、カールステン・フラーの作品。
舞台に滑り台とか面白そう。
舞台とアートインスタレーションの関係は相互に同等だと思うのです。
 日程:2006年10月10日~2007年4月9日
 場所:テイトモダン (ロンドン)
 > For Carsten Höller, the experience of sliding is best summed up
 > in a phrase by the French writer Roger Caillois
 > as a ‘voluptuous panic upon an otherwise lucid mind’.
 > The slides are impressive sculptures in their own right,
 > and you don’t have to hurtle down them to appreciate this artwork.
 > What interests Höller, however,
 > is both the visual spectacle of watching people sliding
 > and the ‘inner spectacle’ experienced by the sliders themselves,
 > the state of simultaneous delight and anxiety that you enter as you descend.
 > To date Höller has installed six smaller slides in other galleries
 > and museums, but the cavernous space of the Turbine Hall offers
 > a unique setting in which to extend his vision.
 > Yet, as the title implies, he sees it as a prototype for an even larger enterprise,
 > in which slides could be introduced across London, or indeed, in any city.
 > How might a daily dose of sliding affect the way we perceive the world?
 > Can slides become part of our experiential and architectural life?
