Sculpture Remixed: Tate Liverpool

Sculpture Remixed: Tate Liverpool

Our father-son design duo Wayne and Jack took Tate Liverpool by storm with their own sculptural exhibition.

Ranging from the mid-19th Century statues to the recent life-size figurative sculptures, the works brought together the most diverse representations of the human body in the arts throughout the past 150 years. The display reflects the constant re-thinking of the human body and its relation to political, social and cultural changes.

Our mise-en-scène indicated another layer of the link between the body and the sculptural space, creating a playful interaction between the two. In the gallery, the audience encountered a group of works standing and posing in a myriad of ways, resembling the audience's own body. Through specially designed lightings, the sculptures come to life in a dreamlike dance of cast shadows. The projections of moving silhouettes in conjunction with Wayne's collection of vintage vinyl music and sound create a surrounding where the conventional viewing of art will be replaced with an interaction of senses.

At the end of the day, we suggested that if you don't care for the art then at least you could have a dance; and Tate Liverpool suggested that if you didn't like The Hemingways' music selection then you couldn't fail to be stimulated by their selection of sculptures. A creative win win, if ever we saw and/or heard one.
