Danish design collective Superflex has filled the Tate Modern‘s Turbine Hall with a snaking framework of three-seater swings, which it hopes will encourage social interaction between visitors.
The One Two Three Swing! installation features a bright orange framework that weaves throughout the huge Turbine Hall, and continues to the outside of the building.
The Danish collective, founded in 1993 by Jakob Fenger, Bjørnstjerne Christiansen and Rasmus Nielsen, hopes that the three-seater swings will instigate group activity and demonstrate the positives of working in collaboration.
“The work invites audiences to combat social apathy through collaborative action, joining together on the count of three,” said the Tate.
Running until 2 April 2018, One Two Three Swing! is the third in a series of annual Hyundai-commissioned artworks that have occupied the Turbine Hall’s vast space – but it is the first installation to break beyond the gallery walls.
