Tino Sehgal This variation
Tino Sehgal's radical and immersive work plunged visitors into a pulsating sensory landscape, by turns enigmatic and recognisable. Taking advantage of the visitor’s own dilating pupils, This Variation constantly shifted perception, processing and transforming before eye and ear.
Seven artists breathed life into the empty spaces of Mayfield Depot alongside Massive Attack v Adam Curtis performances. Featuring Sehgal’s loose-limbed, generous artwork This variation, Spångberg’s psychedelic pop tribute Epic, and Ingvartsen’s inspirational Evaporated Landscapes, a sense of wonder ran through all the shows.
The daily-changing programme and improvised tea-room made this dusty concrete cathedral a surprisingly welcome place to be.
