Art Flix on the Tate Modern
This month's Art Flix presentation on Wednesday, 20th May feature's Tim Marlow on...Carsten Höller at Tate Modern.
British writer, broadcaster and art historian Tim Marlow, takes an exclusive look behind the scenes of Carsten Höller's Test Site installation in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. The Test Site is a set of five stainless steel slides intended to propel members of the public down from the highest floors of the Tate Modern to the very bottom. The slides invite visitors to become part of the art, move out of their comfort zone, free their senses and slide.
The film, features a rare interview with Höller and with unique access from the early stages through to the opening day, this film charts the progress of a fascinating art project.
A complimentary glass of wine accompanies the film which is held at 6:30pm at the National Gallery in Harbour Place.
